Yup.  Then you'll find the pressures are wrong.  Then the shocks ...

Then, of course, you'll get it onto a "western" (as distinct from "desert") 
road.  Then you'll get it aligned properly ...

And then, one day, you'll get back into a normal car.  And you'll wonder how on 
earth people drive them about without dying of fright on every bend.
