now, here's the deal: 3 out of 4 times i thought i froze up, have been within 100yds of the mobil. 2 out of 2 flat tires (both fronts...that hasnt happened in years) have been picked up at the mobil.

if, indeed, the mobil was built on an indian burial ground, shouldnt i of all people be exempt from the curse? i lived with the lakota Sioux for 8 years, so i think i should get a pass.
