In regards to oldcurmdgeon's post about the steering link almost coming loose, I had a similar experience. Many years ago I had a very stout Flathead in a little roadster that weighed nothing. On the way home one night I pushed that little car pretty hard probably to 80-90 MPH and then parked it in our garage. The next day I backed it into the street, drove it less then 100 feet and the right front wheel came off. I can't tell you how many times over the years I've wondered why that wheel did not come off the night before. I guess the Good Lord had other plans for me.
