    Angry RAWR!!! keef = miffed off...

    <sarcasum>Well i had a great da today </sarcasum>


    I was miles away from my home in accrington driving to my gf's anties and all of a sudden my car loses power and starts kangarooing at really low rev's and wouldent go above 2k revs...

    So i pull over and i can head alot of something that sounds like air escaping from something everytime i Rev the car...
    There was an AA van was parked around the corner who i blagged to have a look at my car...

    Turns out my CAT gave in and now has blocked my center section >.<

    so we stabbed 4 holes in the cat and managed to drive back home with it being REALLY loud.

    Now to get looking for a new Cat and Centersection.. BLARGH


    end of rant... haha
