LosCoyotes(Sammi on its lid)

Just a couple pics of my buddies Sammi dirty side up. His girlfriend was driving but HE was the one that told her to go off the ledge. It puked about 3.5 quarts of oil, broke the windshield, and bent the window frame. I don't think it will ever pass smog again; can you say smoke screen. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

Looking at the pic, exactly what caused the rollover? I can't see anything that large to cause it. Am I missing something?

It doesnt look like much of a ledge , but you can see the drop off in the 1st picture pretty well.
It doesnt take much of an off camber drop, if its at the wrong angle, often just turning the wheel towards the high side, allows the front boingers to droop more towards the fall line, and thats all it takes to get you rolling. You have to stay allert, roll overs in short wheel base rigs,can happen very suddenly and surprisingly. At least they have the right attitude about it, nothing you can do at that point. Although a few less pictures and a qyicker recovery to an upright posotion would have caused less accumulation of oil into the top of the motor.
Good pics, Wild
