Upper control arm in center, broke-off end visible at the very top.
Yeah, I don't think I like the "lowered look" on this one.
I guess Mondays are Mondays, even for full-time artists! This morning I loaded up a few boxes of CD sets in my trusty '73 Mach 1 to take to the post office, and made it three blocks before the upper right control arm sheared in two, collapsing the suspension. Woke me right up! One thing I love about driving old cars is that they usually give you a little warning sign before something breaks. One thing I hate is when I ignore those warning signs, and the poor girl finally has to give up. The front right suspension had a squeaky noise that was there when I bought this car two years ago, and I kept thinking I'd fix it "one of these days." So, nobody's fault but mine! Anyway, she broke at 35 mph and got a little wild, but I managed to keep her under control and get off the road. Guess I'd better get back to work!
