Mike’s Roadside BBQ

If anyone was on westbound Braddock Rd. in Fairfax today and saw a big, tall guy with a little, puny fire extinguisher battling a white Toyota Camry going up in a giant ball of flames…that was me.

Something in my engine went POP, CRANK and then KABOOM! Next thing I know it’s like a bad day in Baghdad; shrapnel, flames, and acid flying everywhere.

Just wanted to put out an apology for the traffic delay.

    Michael, are you okay? Do you need a hand getting around over the next few days? Let me know how I can help out.

    I’m fine, a little freaked but fine. Thanks for the ride offer Tom, but I’ve got a car I can borrow til I get the insurance/replacement figured out.

    Let me know if there’s anything I can do. Hate to see a fella stranded by his fire-prone car!

    Michael, as others here can attest, our friend Andrew at Stohlman (Tyson’s) is the best way to replace a car – new or used.
