I owe my life to my Volvo

Just a short story I think I would share with all of you.

One rainy fall day last year I was exiting the highway and merging onto another. I was going about 65 mph when my back end broke lose(bald tires) on the ramp, and by the time I straightened to car out the ramp was turning and I flew off the ramp down the ditch and smashed through a fair amount of smaller trees. As I rolled to stop, I realized my car was still in fact on and running. After sitting there for a second I trenched back up the hill back onto the highway and went home. A few dents and a bent rim was the only thing that came of this accident, I am thankful to my 1987 760 GLE V6 everyday I get in it.

I owe my life 2 TIMES to VOLVO.. Its saved me and 5 kids from an A-hole who smashed into my stopped car at 50mph (and that 5th kid was sitting in the 3rd row seat) none of us had a scratch... then again when my baby and I walked away from another ejit who ran a red light and t-boned us.. Hence the reason I am on my 3rd Volvo!!!
