No camera crew. No support truck.

Summer Cruising. Unexpected stops ahead? thumbnail
 The following is not a typo. This summer, the American Automobile Association (AAA) expects to rescue 9.3 million motorists.9.3 million!While the AAA didn’t offer up any statistics on the number of vacations cut short, we can estimate that... conservatively... at least a million kids are going to miss out on summer fun when the family vehicle stops running.It’s nearly impossible to visualize that many stranded motorists.

He’s not some little kid who has to sit in the car now. It’s time for him to get a turn with the tools.

If this is the first time you’ve heard that one of Formula 1 racer Michael Schumacher’s cars is for sale on Ebay, unfortunately you’re probably too late to cast a bid. We regret that things didn’t end differently. This could have been the first time you finished your Christmas shopping in November.
