Oh my GOD guys I need something to cheer me up I'm having a day from HELL
So here's the story:
Last night, I went camping on Portland where I live with a few mates. We had a lot of stuff to carry including a 9Man tent, so I drove my car up to the spot and locked it all up, etc with that thought hiding in the back of my mind.. will it be okay here?
Anyway, set the tent up.. blah blah had a party some drinks and collapsed a few hours later.
Woke up this morning to find my car facing sideways to where I parked it, with some new additions.....
Okay, so that's pretty bad yeah? Thank GOD the guy who did it left his phone number. Insurance is sorting that one out but still... that's pretty damn bad!
It's 9:30AM this morning, and I'm already on a downer.. so I take my car to my mates house to get my head gasket sorted. Strip electrics, and all that.. start to undo the head bolts.. first two are okay. Third one.. started to crack it off ,then... PING. Snapped! I couldn't believe it!!!!!
Another THREE head bolts cracked and one shattered. It seems the head gasket was done about 30,000 miles ago - by a cowboy mechanic who didn't bother to torque up the bolts properly, resulting in buggered bolts.
So I've gone from having a badly running car, to having a DEAD car with a huge whacking great big hole in the side! Someone post something to make me laugh.. pleeeease before I cry
