We have an official content category called “CC Follow-Up”, but I haven’t used it much. Actually, I created it for this car, when I did a post back in February of 2011 depicting its fall from grace. But it’s back on its feet, so let’s check in and follow its ups and downs.
This was a CC back at the old place, and had been the owner’s dad’s car. But after a break-up of his marriage, the Rambler broke up too.
The rear axle was obviously out of kilter. And so it sat for months, until…
one day it had its rear end jacked up. That was an encouraging sign.
Gave me an opportunity to shoot the Rambler’s rear suspension. Now, I was going to write “torque tube”, but then I remembered that my brother’s Rambler had overdrive, which usually means no torque tube. I should have looked closer, or I could look it up. Sure looks like one from here.
Anyway, my optimism about an imminent repair was misplaced. It sat on its jack-stand for well over a year. But then finally the other day, I see it back on solid ground, on all fours. Now I can rest easier.
