Hi guys :))

Long time did not come to the forum. Imageshack became rebellious and killed many images... I'll have to reupload my photos to a new server.

 

I was driving on the highway and pum! :ohmy:  :unsure:

One morning I had to take a friend to across the city. I knew that the hood was not closed... only the first latch. I drove to my friend's house and i forget close it there. then on the highway the second latch, at 120 km/h the hood was released :/

This is serious...

 

I was lucky and nothing happened... the hood is opened suddenly. there was no car nearby so... i so brake slowly :unsure:

This happened to the guy who ran the shop opposite where I used to live.  He'd they just got it back from a garage and they hadn't closed the bonnet properly, they denied liability.  I hope he took them to the small claims.
