yeah I imagine metal fatigue adds up after 90k miles of in and out for the patrolman that had the car before me.

of course this was also 20 years ago when I was still running 4:30 miles and my legs were a bit more powerful then as well.

speaking of fun tests, what's the pressure required for a steering column to fail? or a steering wheel itself?

during lunch I used to wander over to the impound yard sometimes to check out the latest wrecks out of boredom, and frequently saw steering wheel's with the rim twisted to silly putty, and occasionally a column with an extra bend in it
