That Dragon Sound? Fear It.
Or…How do you know that you no longer care that your brakes are failing?

1) When Top Line Automotive in Naples, Florida, owned and managed by Bill Evans, screws you over, you don’t let him fix your brakes on your car (thus the brakes on your car still DON’T WORK and you still skid to a stop when out driving)

2) You select harsh, angry, angst-metal music that can be played at jet-liner decibels in your car to drown out the squealing-and-grinding noise of your brakes (which, by the way, I actually hear when accelerating…how’s that for bizarre!)

3) You find yourself pleased that you own several harsh, angry, angst-metal-like Duran Duran songs that can be played at jet-liner decibels in your car to drown out the squealing-and-grinding noise of your brakes…and that makes you really happy (Virus, most live versions of Wild Boys, most live versions of Careless Memories, etc.)

4) You contemplate clever, pithy signs to display in reverse on your front window to alert drivers in front of you that your brakes don’t work

5) You contemplate clever, pithy signs to wave at drivers who cut you off in traffic to put the fear of God into them so they understand the ramifications of cutting off a car whose brakes don’t work

So! This article’s challenge to you is to come up with one of those clever, pithy signs for me. You don’t have to type it in reverse… Make each other laugh, folks! It’s good for the soul!

Here you go Sandy,
Stop fast in front of me and prepare to meet thy GOD.

Or try to pass and I will flick a bugger.

Take your pick, Mikey

Mikey,
You're fabulous! Here's my question: Can a cop pull you over if you're not doing anything illegal? Is it some form of entrapment if he/she reads the sign, pulls you over, and THEN checks out your brakes? Hmmm...
