Saturday I took the 67 (my kids took the 58 & 59) to a local LBC show. 
It was about a 100 mile round trip day. Other than some fuel issues on 
the 58, all went well.
Today I took the 67 to the Dentist and notice the steering wheel was not 
centered like it was before Saturdays trip. I know it was centered when 
I left home Saturday and it has been centered since I finished the car a 
couple months ago. So why is it off center?
Also checking the toe in which was set at 1/16 IN, was now 1/2" OUT.
I reset the toe tonight to 1/16 in and my steering wheel is straight again.
What caused it to go out so much?
Yes this is the same side with the effed up camber but I did have it 
reasonably close with an offset urethane bushing which I did pin so it 
did not roll to the low end. It's still pinned and where I set it.
The wheel is leaning way out again at the bottom again. I know I didn't 
bend the frame anymore than it was already bent.
All bushings are new, car has about 400 miles on it.
This is a constantly changing left front wheel.
I also learned that my genuine BMC wheel embellishers make an awful 
whistle noise at 75-80 mph.
