I have a feeling that 'ol Scottie isn't quite as tough as I thought he was.

I was running to town for an errand. I pulled up to the Stop sign about 2 miles from the house. Stopped. Looked both ways. First left, then right. Then left again. Eased her out onto the hardroad. Began to accelerate. Love that sound through the Magnaflows. BAM... ching, ching, ching.. chunk... chunk... chunk... womp....... womp.............. womp!

Scott told me he lost the straps on the AMC 20 axle yoke. He didnt say if the bolts came out or broke.
So it wasn't actually the u-joint. I'm sure he'll have a good story to tell.
