    The first time I took it for a ride the brakes started dragging 6 blocks from home. Just barely made it back & now my rotors may need turning. Not enough space between the booster & master cyl. Put 1 washer behind the master now that's ok.Today I'm going to go out on the highway, it's been idling a lot so gotta clean her out. Get 3 miles out of town, nail it into passing gear & the throttle cable breaks. No cell phone & no string for a cable. Get out & start walking. Got about 30 feet from the car & thought, I have a dime in my pocket, so I'll turn the idel screw in. Made it back home at 40 mph. Wife is affraid to ride in it now, because what's next. Before I even got it out of the garage it rolled into my work bench. Starting to wonder myself.

    I dont think your experience is much different from most. You'll get them all worked out if it dont kill ya first.
