Another Nervous Breakdown

Filed under: Car Photo Of The Day,Cars — chuck goolsbee @ 1:37 am

Sorry for the lack of postings of late… I’ve been sick as a dog.

Anyway, in today’s Car Photo of the Day the “breakdown” theme continues. Here it wasn’t so much a breakdown as a near-catastrophe of Hindenburgian proportions. This car ran over a chunk of rebar, which punctured the (full!) gasoline tank, which emptied itself rather quickly. THANKFULLY for all involved, this was not a Hollywood movie, or there would have been a huge explosion. Fortunately it was merely the annual running of the Colorado Grand.

Anyone know the car?


  1. Yes.
    And, my geek humor’s at LEAST as good as your car humor!
    Now, go back to..whatever you server-farm ranchers do…..!
    When you gunna be in town again?

  2. Sowwy to hear of the sickness, chuck; I can relate, having been pretty under the weather myself lately and just now, getting back to being able to *hear.* I had such a bad head cold last week, I *lost* most of my hearing. Talk about scared…..
    Get well!
