My Story begins with me trading for what was originally a 1967 fastback. Someone back in the
70’s had cut the roof off and installed a model A bed in it. Since I consider myself quite the old car
fixer upper (jack of all trade mechanic), I rebuilt many aspects of the car to make it reliable and fun to drive. I just finished the car earlier this week and set out for the 23rd annual mustang roundup. All was going well and I made my 2nd run in the autocross and the car handled well. On my next run in trying to better my time, I was more aggressive on my driving on the course. Problemsquickly arose at the end of the long straight away when I tried to turn right and nothing happened. Then the front passenger side of the car dropped and I heard much noise. When I slowed way down, the course had gone to red flags and I noticed my tire was leaning over. It appeared that lower control arm was loose. Being the resourceful mechanic that I am I thought maybe backing the car some, it might pull the tire back into position. It worked. I drove my car off course. Seems the problem was the alignment shop did not tighten the eccentric nut on the control arm.
