Funny Story

So last night me and a couple friends are drinkin some brews and working on the SVT. While in the process of changing out the fuel filter my car pretty much fell on my friends head. The jack was put in the under the rear coil. Needless to say it went through the hole and a beer bottle caught the car from crushing his face. Heres a picture... everything is all good it was pretty scary at the moment but it came out and all is good.

ALWAYS use jackstands. Wow, I'm glad he's alright.


I personally don't drink while doing car work. Drink, or work on car. Pick one.

well if we werent drinking there would have been no bottle there. its not like we were taking my engine apart either, just changing out my fuel filter. we werent drunk by any means.

this is starting to sound like the staements of an alcoholic in denial.
