    I had a friend in high school who wrecked when his popped on him. He said one minute he is flying down this narrow little country road, (barely, one lane)having a blast, then there is a pop sound. The next instant the car is full of steam and the windshield fogs up in a matter of seconds.

    He got slowed down, a bit, and managed not to hit any trees, but he slammed his right front fender and wheel into a monster of a rock. It struck forcefully enough to break the ball joint and twist up the lower A arm like a pretzel.

    He didn't get hurt or anything, but it shook him up pretty good. He later told us he had been smelling coolant for a few days, but thought it was comeing from somewhere under the hood.

    BTW, it wasn't a box body. I want so say it was a late 70's full size ford, but I really don't remember.
