I used to own a Contour.
Any number of things can happen, including but not limited to, coming apart while you're driving recklessly and endangering lives, causing you to lose a wheel and control of your car, killing you, any passengers, and/or passersby walking down the sidewalk.
Owning a vehicle is a serious responsibility. The above distinct possibility has happened before. A girlfriend of mine had hers go, causing loss of steering resulting in her plummeting off a cliff on an overpass in Colorado.
You need to sit down and think long and hard about how many lives you are needlessly endangering, not just your own.
