Some of the older cars have left-tightening lugs on one side (driver side I
think). My '48 Dodge has them. Not that I ever torque them down. I
tighten them until I can't tighten anymore. In fact, I don't think my
clicking torque wrench works to the left...

I've heard it said many times that you should NEVER use a tourque wrench to
loosen anything. If that is true then why does my tourque wrench have a
reversible ratchet? Surely there can't be that many backwards threaded nuts
and bolts out there.
