Somewhere across the big pond, a German busted out laughing without having a clue as to why.

Yeah, that looks good and stuck alright!

I did that once with a '57 Willys Jeep.  I was able to get it out with a come along roped to a tree.  I was hell and gone back in the boonies deer hunting when it happened, and I'd probably still be there if it weren't for that come along.

Buddy of mine blew a headgasket in his gmc fullsize.

All I had around was my moms mazda protege

Probably took a few years off the clutch but it got the job done

I just sold my 944 turbo today.  The #1 rod is now the number #1a and #1b rods.  Parts came out of the oil pan on I90.
It was towed to my house with a American made truck and most likely it will be transported to its new owner via an American made truck.
I hope that helps.

I would have pushed it home, up hill, in a blizzard, at night before I would have let that happen...
But seriously,  which funeral home do we send the flowers too.
