Vintage Bluuues!


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was descending down to Vintage this morning, looking forward to my first meet with my rebuilt 2002. I was driving down Hwy 1. At  half moon bay I had a bad feeling and decided to go home. Then one city away from my house the gas pedal broke (striped). I was stranded on the side of the road. I remembered this happen to a fellow faq member and he/she used shoe lace and got home. I did exactly that. It was ghetto and i only could drive very slow with hazards but i got home!!!! I put the car in the garage and notice it was making a weird metal grinding noise. I look at the driver side rear wheel and notice my caliper rubbing against the rotor. Then i notice the axle nut was loose. Literally, loosen it by hand. So, that could have been very bad situation on the road!!!!!!! I am glad that i made the decision to turn around...... I made final preps before i left but you'll never know!!! I swear I torqued it all down!!! oh well, everyone have fun and ill see you guys another time!
