I used a coat hanger to bind together the shattered U joints on a 78 Nova and drive 53 miles to the next town.

I remember helping Sam use a coffee can tightened with a coat hanger to "repair" the broken exhaust pipe under the car. And it passed inspection this way. Only in NC.

You remind me of how my housemate fixed the sagging bumper skirt on my truck with a couple of C-clamps. It would never have occurred to me, but they worked a treat.

I routinely drive cars until they fall apart so about a year before they die, they are held together with all manner of spit and bailing wire.
