Well, the Hot Rod broke down on us on the way home from the Autorama, just less than a half mile from home. We came up to a red light, and there came a rather sinister sound from under the car. I have never heard anything like it before.
The car would idle just fine and rev like normal, but once you put it in gear and try to go, it starts making a very bad noise and won't go. Looking under the hood and under the car, we could find nothing to indicate a failure. We had to call AAA to get a tow. It was a sad sight to see the car on the back of a wrecker.
Were are thinking it could be the drive shaft, throw out bearing or the more expensive part, the transmission. Time will tell once we get the car all jacked up and start investigating.
