Well, I did Friday night.

I'm pecking out this thread with my left hand because I broke my right hand. I was working in the yard moving some downed trees and got my right hand crushed between two of them. Ended up breaking the bone in my hand that goes to my pinky (fifth meta something). I was going to tough it out, but I could see the bones sticking out (not through the skin but definitely pointing in the wrong direction) and it hurt like @#%$#@$%@#$%. Here comes the best part, my wife was gone and the only car I had was the Bullitt. :sad: I live about 30 min from the hospital, and by the time I got there I had wished I had purchased a V6 auto. The torque in the Bullit did save me some though, start in 2nd and shift to 4th at the beginning then I just left it in third and lugged her from stop signs and lights.

The hand is doing better now, thanks to painkillers. I just had to share the only time that I have not enjoyed my Bullitt.

Sorry to hear that Zach.

If they put your hand and wrist in a cast, you might want to have someone drive you when it comes off. I broke the same thing in my right hand, was driving an F250 back then, and my wrist was like a wet noodle when the cast came off. Had to shift with my left hand and hold the steering wheel with the right.

Thank goodness you had the Bullitt. If you had to drive to the doctor in a 5 speed Geo Metro the story would not have been anywhere near as exciting.

Good point! Since I had to drive a 5 speed in that condision I couldn't have asked for a better car.
