Nothing gets your attention like making a three wheeler out of your four wheeler. This episode reminds me about losing the left rear off my 68 Camaro back in my teenage years. Mid burnout, something snaps and the rear end kicks hard to the right. I'm thinking what the hell happened? Then my buddy says, "hey man is that your tire?" We were stopped on the side of the road and there's my L60 bouncing down the road in front of us. We lived through it.

Glad you're OK and the HAMB family was there to help. In 1980 we just had a long walk back to town.

Doc is the man.

Ryan, Are you going out of your way to bond with all your cars? I guess it's back to the 'soul' of the matter.

Good you're alright. Safe trip home!

Some bad luck for sure. Glad everyone is O.K. It's gotta be comforting for all of us here (on the HAMB) to hear this story and know that there is this remarkable sense of "community" among fellow hot rodders that compels them to help out whenever a crisis develops. With all the recent stories about car thefts and related bad news, this goes a long way towards restoring my faith in humanity. Kudos to all who were involved in helping out. This story could have had a much more unhappy ending.......Don.

Nice save and kudos to all who helped. Denise is the den mother of this operation.
I can share your pain. I lost this wheel (1970 Merc CHP) heading up the Grapevine doing 90. The bolts worked loose but fortunately the wheel was trapped. I threw a rooster tail of sparks for a long way.
Just before I started this trip I had the rear brakes done by my local shop. When they installed the wheel the air gun was set incorrectly resulting in the nuts being basically finger tight. 300 miles later off they came.

When you started this message board a few years ago did you ever dream it would have this much power and support? How many folks have been helped like this? How many more will be helped in the future? And oh yeah, Denise and Doc are both rulers.

Glad to hear you guys are alright.
Doc, you're some guy!
I am trying to figure out how this can happen.....
How can all the studs on a hub break at the same time??
If it was under torque I could understand but driving down the road under minimal torque at speed doesn't give alot of resistance. This shit scares the hell out of me...

Good to hear you made it thru that wild ride safely..you have the ability and people to back you up to fix the steel that got bent..small issue when you conciter how bad it could have gotten.
any clue as to why all 5 studs decided to let go like that?
maybe some heads up for some of us other builders, drivers, HAMBers?
over torque? loose?
poor quality?
be interested in the knowledge as to why.

hope you had a good time anyways dispite the harry ride.
