So, I am having squealing issues as soon as I turn the wheel.  I tighten the belt a little more and 99% of the squealing stopped.  So I decided to take out my shell with a motor around my 1 mile run to listen to the steering.

 

Since I have been replacing everything in the car, lots and lots of stuff have been delivered to my house.  So the delivery guy (company name not to be disclosed) and I have been talking cars for a few years.  On my 2nd trip around the neighborhood, I passed the truck again, but didn't realize he was in the truck.  After passing the truck the second time, he decided to chase me down, I live just off a corner, on a very non-busy street, so I came around and with my car parked on the street and my girls in the driveway, I couldn't make the turn into the driveway.  So I was half out in the street and half in the driveway, then the delivery truck comes around the corner.  Since the car has no mirrors and a loud ass motor, I didn't see nor hear the truck.  He missed hitting the car by about an inch since I was backing up to pull in the garage, I only stopped since my girlfriend jumped up pointing past the car.  He passes the car, puts his hazards on, tells my girlfriend to watch the truck and jumps in the passenger side, which has no seats. 

 

Off we went for a run around the neighbor, LOL.

Taking people for a ride is the 4th  best thing about these cars.  :)

I had no idea he was right behind me, when I passed his truck he was parked.
