First off, I know next to nothing about old cars. My avatar has been sitting in my tiny 1 car garage for 2 years now. 3 days before it was delivered, I had a pretty big life changing event take place, so it has just been sitting. During that time, I have read through hundreds and hundreds of threads here. Over the past summer, I decided the least I could do would be to take the rusty wheels off, get them blasted, painted and on some used tires since the tires from 1962 (last time tagged) are still on it and 3 are flat. Started with the left front, which was the most rusted. No luck getting the bolts off. Tried several remedies which were posted here on the board. Still, nothing, so I gave up and decided to wait until we move into a bigger place. Then, yesterday while home for lunch, I was reading here and clicked on a new thread that had something to do with a 64 Dodge. There, in maybe the 2nd post, was something about pre '70 MOPARs having reverse lugs on the left side and to check for an L on the lug. So, I grabbed my flashlight, and headed out to the garage to check. Sure enough, there was an L. I grabbed my breaker bar and socket and put it on the nut I had tried in vain to remove. With a little force, it kind of popped and broke free and started to turn. Same with the others. I feel so damn stupid because it never occurred to me 1 time to maybe think about loosening the lug nuts in the opposite direction. However, I'm pretty happy at this point that I finally found out and didn't end up breaking something off.
