I don't think I've ever seen shadetree mechanic work like this before... this is a new kind of crude but effective innovative way to get a dead car running


  1. pretty cool,

    reminds me of my childhood, growing up in a rural Appalachian community in the late 60s, nearest traffic light was 56 miles away, the main source of income was making moonshine, and the locals were usually pretty resourceful, even though they had no money at all.
    my dad was a forest ranger, we lived in a house owned by the govt, so the locals thought we were billionaires, with running water and electricity and a gas furnace and our vehicles were not old station wagons with the back half of the roof chopped of to make it into a pickup truck

    1. wow... those were some poverty stricken times and area. I've looked through and kept a book, Woodstock Homes. Basically the hippies and free thinkers that went off the grid and lived in the mountains on the East coast, making cabins and tree houses from whatever they could scrounge. No electricity, no running water, and no hassles about taxes and all that. One of my grand dads was a forest ranger type (I'm not sure on the exact job title/branh of govt) and the other worked and retired from the forest service, mostly the roads division, in the middle of no where Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
