brakes. pft. who needs 'em..

well.... fun situation on the way to work this morning. was goin down a fairly steep hill, went to stop at the bottom, and the break peddal pretty much just fell to the floor. no resistance at all. got the car stopped with the hand brake and got out to take a look... rear passenger side tire / rim is covered in brake fluid. got the car into a garage to take a look. he just called now (like after i wrote 'covered in brake fluid...), said the master cylinder popped and the brake shoes on the passenger side are toast from the break fluid. also said he cant get the driver side drum off becasue its seized up pretty good...

where will the fun end...

Well, at least you can look at the good side. You did keep your head and got the car stopped!
