Gee lets see one out of millions of cars produced has this problem and it's a 32 year old automobile. Probably from when someone removed the steering wheel at some point and didn't re secure it back on.

Get real why don't you.

See what I mean? 32 year old American car finally gets put down. Where are all of those 32 year old Toyota's driving around? Oh! They must have rusted out 15 years ago.

Dunno about 32 year old Toys but my 23 year old Toy is doing quite well thanks. Car has benefitted from some TLC from ol' Mitch, and needs a little more of that in the near future, but drove it to work today.

Not all of us live in the Rust Belt.

Yeah, either the Buick's owner or someone else had the steering wheel off for some repair, steering wheels are generally held on with a nut that won't back off by itself.

I vote it was tampered with before and not securely placed back on or something.

I cant say anything bad about old American or Japanese cars. I still drive my 1973 Pontiac (37 years old) to work almost daily and this car has never failed me. I had owned it 8 years and only had to replace the alternator, fan belt and master cylinder. I had had old Toyotas too... had a 1981 Toyota Cressida in the late 90s. Not a speck of rust, but it was a southern car... well built car.

My dad has a 1985 Nissan truck with 240K and his old 1988 Nissan had 289K when he sold it with the original engine, tranny, etc. The only thing that was not original were the brakes and starter. Dad got it in 1999 off of my uncle, who bought it new in 1988.
