    Cadillac slipped away this morning on 495SB Milford ma just before exit 17 at 9:15
    after a Toyota matrix performed a unexpected pit maneuver causing a Dale Earnhardt spin sending her in to both left and right guard rails across 3 lanes for a total of 3 360"S . Spilling my coffee on to and into my Blackberry also destroying the phone and making it look as if i pissed myself {i did not...} she will be missed god speed old friend

    Sorry for your loss. Been there several times over the years.

    If that car had a trailer package it would make one heck of a donor car.

    A Toyota knocked a Caddy off the road? It must have been over the hill or defective. That Toyota should have went for a spin. Glad your alright though.

    That sucks. At least she went out with a spin and a bang. Glad you are alright. Are you going to replace her with another 96?

    Well at least we have an answer to the how many miles will they go before a rebuild. The engine will outlast the car. 206,000 miles was a lot of miles to go without a major tear down. My condolences, I would be more than sad if my 86 Brougham met that fate. She only has 108,000 miles on her though so I can expect to put another 100,000 on her before I start worrying.
