Okay It's no secret, that like a lot of members, I like to test all the modifications I do on my csm cars
So I take my Mirage out into the mountains to test how it handles with a new set of oz rims, my test area is around 20 something miles of hills, and twisting hairpins in Mexico lol, I have gone out to them often, so I go out and decide I want to see just how good they are...anyway on my way back down the hill I see a light in the distance, not sure what it is, but I know well enough to take caution, so I drive slower, fast forward ahead, by the time I reach the light I see a guy and his girlfriend on the side of the road, I stop and ask if they need help, and
boy did they...
Their story... as far as I recall it:
They were taking a corner at 60mph! in a rwd 40th anniversary mustang
, and then a jack rabbit jumped into the middle of the road, they swerved hard to avoid it, and the car went through a barb wire fence, knocking the spoiler off, and fell down a 7 foot soft shoulder/ditch, and the car went into a cow field a good 200 feet or so on, and eventually the, drivers side front tire hit a rock and broke the beads contact to the rim [making the tire flat], they got out of the car and tried pushing it back, when out of nowhere some cows were charging at them, at which point they got back in the car and somehow managed to move it slowly back to where it flew down, and they got stuck on the shoulder of the road, but his girlfriend twisted her ankle trying to push the car out.
So enter me: I offered to help them out any way that I could, I lent them my jack and helped them change the front tire with a spare, and I tried to help them get up the hill again, via building momentum and trying to push it up the hill, many close calls, but eventually they called a tow truck for a quote, it was an insane a $$$ cost that I offered to give them a ride to a local truck stop, and then get a tie down strap, and then see if I could pull it out 50%50 chance it would work, we went back up to the there hills, hooked up the tie down strap, and my mirage had enough power to pull it out, don't ask me how I thought they'd need a larger truck to get it out, but it worked and they were free...theres more to the story but I don't want to give out specifics lol they thanked and offered to pay me back, but I declined it looked like they had a lot left to fix on the car, and it felt like the right thing to do.
