valet returns...
"The back tires won't move," he says.

After unsuccesfully attempting to drive car and unfreeze brake... I end up calling home for a ride.

Here's what happened...
I had the car's rotors and calipers replaced last in winter 2001, and I didn't have time to do it myself so I gave it to a friend who knows a lot about cars in general. He ended up putting a bad spring on with the new setup and it was a few spirials too long. As a result, it didn't have the same strength. When the valet pulled hard on the brake, the entire spring stuck and didn't have enough strength to come off. A few mins with the wire cutters and reshaping around a screwdriver, the NX is good as new.
