I like this thread. We chuckle today, but those fixes were of survival years.

glad it is received in the way it was intended,  not slamming or knocking anyone's fixes.... they just make me laugh

I got a wild hair to kill 2 birds with one stone as I needed to visit the local locksmith, so I figured I'd get a key cut for the Spring Special since it didn't have one supplied by the previous owner.  I carefully removed the ignition switch from the dash, and mr. butterfingers dropped it on the floorboards...that's when I noticed the cylinder had fallen out of the switch.  Upon further examination, it appears that somebody took the pins out of the cylinder, and all ya needed to operate the switch was a used corn dog stick :cool:

Look closely around brake hose.

the patches were definitely a farm   repair, bottom if frame rail was 2 pieces of leaf spring. Most of the welds were just flux and a bit of birdshit holding it together.

Waay back when, garages and mechanics were few and far between. So cars were built to be reapairable. But still requires parts. 
farmers are way out in the boonies and only had the materials at hand to fix and get rolling. Same went for the farm machinery. I can only respect what they did to keep things rolling.
