This is probably not for the young. "Many" years ago I remember riding with my older brother and his old '31 Pontiac would shake so bad we often had to stop, let it settle down, then start over. But, that didn't keep him from getting girls. They thought it was cool.....after they got over their fright.

Kind of like when you get your 4x4 back on the black top after you just packed the wheels with mud? Happend last week to me...

1976 Chevy 3/4 ton 4 x 4 farm truck with mud nylon tires. You would get off the gravel and onto the blacktop and once in awhile it would start shaking and the gear shift would almost break your right knee. If you had somebody with you, they would get intensely excited. It was like you were in a paint shaker.

The front end parts on those old cars wore quickly and the bias ply tires weren't the greatest. It is good they don't make them like they used to.

We had a 1970 IH Scout. Big time shimmy after any railroad track, always wearing out bushings in that thing. Did have a lot of fun with it.

What an interesting thread. I was using a set of piloted reamers today. they were orginally used to ream new king pin bushings. Came in a set in a wooden box. Brand name Blue Point.

Dog tracking ended with unitized bodys. It was a simple adjustment on the full frame vehicles. I did a lot of them and GM was the biggest offender

Stole my Dad's truck once and drove it with the emergancy brake on the whole time. It was snowing the next time he got in it and when he applied the brake the left front brake grabbed and the rear end broke traction and flew out.

My '71 Chrsler would shimmy....I guess that was to be expected when the only tires I ever ran on it would come from the junk yard. I had a few that would blow out and a couple that the tread would peel off...mostly at higher speeds. I never balanced them...didn't have any money then.

Don't forget the old hot rods with drum brakes.

I had a "modified" GTO that would do 160, but the brakes would fade out at about 90.

I was a kid, and thought I was immortal. I tested that belief several times.
