I had the misfortune to have an Omega (X-body Nova clone) front wheel bearing go out on me- it spun the inner race on the spindle so bad that I had to cut it off the spindle! Totally welded itself on. Made a mess of the spindle, but the car wasn't long for this earth, so I dressed it w/a mill bastard and installed a set of bearings. Drove it like that until the end. Young, broke and stupid.
