Highway to Hell: Horror Stories from the Great American Roadtrip

Is there anything more genuinely American than hitting the open road in an overloaded, aging jalopy...and then spending part of the vacation broken down by the side of that road, changing a flat tire ... in a bright green Speedo?

We asked for your best road trip horror stories. And boy, did we get them! Stories of cars breaking in half, dogs on fire, hysterical mass-familial roadsickness ... even the unintended demolition of a Dairy Queen.

Once again, we want to hear your sordid sagas. We just can't get enough!

In the meantime, enjoy our favorite stories.
