Red face So....there I was, heading home last night.....

....stopped at the red light on the Expressway home from my friends place, looking across the street at the Chevy dealer & the new SSR truck, thinking....Black, flames & moon discs....

Me in the middle lane, white S10 truck on the left...nobody else around.

Light changes, truck moves off...I look up & realise the lights green, let the handbrake off.....move maybe 10 feet, when a Toyota or H*nda comes across from the left at maybe 60mph, in front of me, through the red light & misses the front of the car by maybe a foot............

Toooooooooo close.........

Crazy thing is tho.....almost the same thing happened again at a different light Friday on my way home from work....

This time it was a truck & trailer, but moving a lot slower & it was daylight!!

Still.......

And I am still thinking, Black, Flames & Moon Discs
