Pokey.Clyde: You don't know what an emergency/parking brake is?
itsaback: Had this happen twice. First time I was 16 and on my way to school. Was driving about 35 mph at the time, but proceeded to make a right turn at a stoplight nearby. A few seconds later, the previously attached wheel rambled its way into the side of my beloved Plymouth Volare, marring its faux-woodgrain. I never figured out what had happened or how, as the wheel came off, but the lug nuts remained. Just ripped through the rim, while driving in a straight line. Should have asked my Physics teacher.The second time was about 6 years ago after a rotation, Wheel came off, and just rolled off into the woods. 45 mph that time. I had spare lug nuts and reattached the wheel. Never went back to that place, as it would have led to trouble,.
dickfreckle: And don't forget the blinker fluid.
Asa Phelps: freeway speeds
Lsherm: jaylectricity: CSB: Took my girl's car to get her oil changed because the place was charging less than I could even buy the oil and filter for. He's got the car up on the jack and he says, "One of these lugs is stripped and another post is missing."I knew about the post but it was impossible that I stripped the lug because I hand tighten them every time. He wanted to replace the posts for $50 I said no way. He tried to say, "Well, the manager is being really cool because he shouldn't let you drive this out of here."I'm like, "Yeah, I live 5 seconds away and you'll never see me again." Cost me about $4 to replace the posts and lugs myself.Why the fark were you driving a car with a missing post on one wheel?
