Last Call: Have you ever seen a car tear an ACL?

I hate to laugh at the expense of other people’s misfortune, but this is pretty funny. The caption was funny and the replies were, honestly, even funnier. These kinds of videos always make me wonder what happened after. Was the owner pissed or did he find it funny because it was caught on video? I’m guessing it’s one of those, he was mad but now that’s on Twitter he finds it amusing. At least that’s what I hope.

    Not quite like that but once a 60’s Chevelle decided he would pull into my street to back up and turn around. When he put it in reverse and cranked the wheel the lower ball joint let go. I happened to be in the yard so I pulled out the floor jack and we were able to get it parked on the street in front of my house. His buddy came with his trailer and we managed to get it on.

      I had something similar happen with my ’96 Thunderbird. Coming home from a ~300-mile drive on a cold North Dakota Saturday in January, the left front lower balljoint let go as I was pulling into my garage. I dollied it the rest of the way into the garage with my floor jack, spent the next few weeks driving my ’05 Dodge Dakota, lost patience waiting for tolerable weather to fix the T-bird, and had it towed away to be fixed. The day I got the Ford back from the shop was the first day since the failure that the daily high temperature was actually above freezing.

    I’ve seen some cars by the side of the road with a tucked under front wheel after the fact but never in action.
