February 1998 Whoops!

Dear 4-Wheel & Off-Road,
My '79 Jeep Cherokee was parked where I work when a logging truck suddenly dumped on top of it. The driver of the truck had swerved to avoid a collision. I had planned to drive into a wooded area later that day, but instead, the trees came to me!

Dear 4-Wheel & Off-Road,
My friend Brian and I were driving in a construction area and thought his Chevy Z-71 could make it through this pond. Nope-the truck got stuck in water up to the seats. Luckily, another Z-71 came by and was able to get us out. There was about $5,000 in damage, ranging from the transmission to the interior.

Dear 4-Wheel & Off-Road,
We were plowing snow in a parking lot all night and most of the following morning with this '96 Dodge. When we were almost finished, we noticed smoke coming from under the hood. Before we could open the hood, the truck was engulfed in flames.
