Thanks Guy's for your kind posts, I will be back on Monday at my office and the PC.

I'm feeling ok now, but not my little car, have not got another one yet, want one like before

Will be looking at one next week, till then I have Tim's four track To use from off the farm

It was on ice, and the car slid off the road and I held the brakes on going down a bank and ended up in a tree, the high bank made the car roll over onto it's side, and then on it's roof, the hard top held out really well.

They are all telling me here that I should have let the brakes go and I would have been fine and would have got out of it, they tell me that now.

Anyway good job I had my phone and could call Timbo to help, or I could still be there now.
Holly

glad you are ok holly, i hate winter due to ice and snow. a company in vermont usa used to make recap tires with sand mixed into the rubber, it made for real good traction on snow and ice but they closed down in the 90's.

We can change a car, we can't remplace men or women because they are unique.

Here, ice and snow are plagues because they are unusual.

So glad to hear you are ok.

Shame about the little car though. Hope you fine a replacement soon.

But be glad you are ok, as we couldn't replace you

Love Ana, Lucy and Mr and Mrs Fezmonkey, (Phil and Karen).

i flipped a car back in the mid 70's, hit a patch of ice and slip off the shoulder hit a sign post went about two feet in the air landed on the side of the car and slid about 40 feet. good thing the car was built like a tank (1964 ford falcon two door) only damage was a broken mirror and a dented door.
thats why i hate winter and icy snowy roads.
