Rich, a little Samuel folk lore for you:  His family isn't
into shortened versions of names.  They like to be old
fashioned and pronounce all the syllables.  Sam-u-el, his
brother Wes-ley, his other brother Wil-li-iam and his
grandpa Lawr-ence.  Not Sam, Wes, Bill or Lor.  :-)

It looks like Sam-u-el's passenger side TAB had previously
broken and been driven around that way.  The underbody has a
few scratches where the end of the trailing arm rubbed it
several times.  The TAB on that side looks like a hardware
store special they cut down to fit.  They put the alignment
shims on the wrong side of the trailing arm, so the
alignment was completely off.  I noticed the rear wheel was
cocked too far in the first time I saw the car.  Once I got
the TAB out, I noticed that two of the big washers were
missing.  So I just said, "phuque it" and put it back like
it was until he gets the missing parts.
