I had a major motor vehicle meltdown while on the way home from the hangar late this morning. There was a loud bang, then there was a huge cloud of smoke behind me. It was like you see in a NASCAR race when the engine blows. I put the car in neutral, turned off the ignition and coasted to a stop on the shoulder of the road. I opened the hood, and saw smoke pouring off the exhast. After the smoke cleared I could see that the whole back of the engine and firewall were covered with oil. It is so tight back there that I couldn't see what had failed. I called a tow truck and had it towed to my local repair shop. Hopefully the extended warranty folks won't give me too much grief.
