just got back from the second car show with this car, lot a people looking and taking pics ......... on the way home ( about 20 miles) it developed a bad vibration, and pulling to the left, stopped on a side road, to check the lug nuts, they were tight, but discovered the lug wrench did not fit all the lug nuts ! Boy, would I have been in trouble if I needed to change a tire ! Then , after sitting a minute or two , while I looked for the problem , decided to drive it home the last 4 or 5 miles, slowly,.......... it was fine ! Put in the garage checked the front end ...the left front brakes was locked up ! I guess after it sat along side the road a few minutes, the pressure drained off, then after driving it home , and using the barakes, they locked up again !..Therefore, as long as I used the calipers directly off the donor car ('85) I will assume the left caliper is bad ???????? which means I will have to buy 2 new calipers .........
