Am I lucky or Unlucky?

By charger

Been a whole year since I blogged about anything and a lot has gone on with the 68 Charger just working out the bugs.

Yesterday I had to pause and ask am I lucky or unlucky?!

Took the 68 out for a quick run (it was over 60 degrees and sunny, weird KS winter) to determine if we got the electrical issue worked out. We did. However, while pulling in to QT to get some Premium gas. Felt a slight pop in the steering wheel while slowing down to turn. Got to the pumps and topped off. As I was leaving pump and beginning to turn. The Steering wheel just began to spin and the car didn't turn. What the X!@%#. Couldn't steer a bit. lifted the hood after kind of moving out of everyone's way. The steering shaft was spinning in the knuckle of the steering Geer. Nothing obvious but it was broken for sure. Called a tow truck to take me back to the shop since I couldn't see anyway to fix the issue on the road. Having owned Chargers all my driving life I've never experienced this before. I'm unlucky that it happened. But I'm damn lucky I wasn't moving fast down the highway when it did.
