ResQme

Does anyone keep these handy in their cars? Given the total reliability of M-B electricals, I am wondering what people are doing to keep themselves safe in the event of rollover, fire or water. I have thought of buying something like this for years but keep putting it off because I figure it'll never happen to me.

After the wedding/men's room incident on Sunday, I am reassessing old decisions.

I don't always have a handy broken piece of spark plug to hurl at the glass.

With any luck, we'll go all 12 rounds but I really like Round 6's enthusiasm and attitude!

Would you believe I now have to carry a fire extinguisher with me every time I road test a customers car? Today I got into a car to road test it and the owner was sitting in the passengers seat, but when I showed him the fire extinguisher he got out of the car
