As I was cleaning out the trunk of my 1996 Cadillac SLS, I realized that there was a jack and a tire tool, along with the spare tire. Thinking back, I bought the car from the lady across the street when she stopprd driving, back in 2004. Pristine condition and with 34,000 miles. Now, 15 years later, still only 88,000 miles, and in perfect condition. Hmmm... when was the last time I changed a tire? In fact, when was the last time I had a flat? Couldn't quite remember, but it was a long, long time ago. The last time, I commuted to work, was in 1984, and before that, maybe the last time, was when I was a travelling District Manager driving about 35,000 miles a year. That was bakck in 1978. So, no flat tires in 41 years. A tribute to the tire manufcturers, and probably the cars. When was your last flat tire?... and did you fix it yourself?
