I realize that not everyone has a wife or a girl friend, or is even male, so feel free to share other significant other stories. I will get it started. Last night my wife totaled the 8th car of our 25 year marriage. She had our son and 3 of his friends in her Dodge Stratus (nearly 1000 lbs of passengers in a little car) and could not stop when a semi cut her off on the LIE. She drove the car, in slow motion according to my son, under the back of the truck all the way to the middle of the car top. No one got a scratch since it happened so slow that they all had time to duck down. Hurst tools really do a number on cars She managed to keep this car for nearly 3 years. Almost a record.
