Well I was on my way to a show out of town and just pulled of the highway and the wheel studs broke off on me. The damage was minimal but the qtr still got mangled. The bad thing is that about 2 years ago the same thing happend to me on the way to the Indy Lowrider show but on the drivers side.

Oh well its more of a reason to paint it this winter

Ouch....hate to hear that man.

You sure you just didn't have Shane in the passenger seat causing them to break off?

That happened to me on my 82, but I was lucky and the wheel didn't come off. I drove for 10 miles with them studs broken.

That happened to a 64 Impala my homie had a while back. He had to repaint the quarter a couple of times. For some reason it happens on early 60's Impalas a lot. :dunno:
