I don’t have a picture to show, but when I was 16 and started driving, I had a 63 Ford that I believe had the first “cruise-control”.........I was too young, and dumb to fix the spring on the throttle body for the accelerator pedal. Instead, I tied a rope to the gas pedal and when I wanted to slow down, I’d just pull the rope so the accelerator pedal would stop accelerating.. LOL ..............true story, I’m embarrased to say

This is good stuff. I used duct tape and beer cans to fix my muffler on the car when I was young. Worked great back then.

I’m highly suspicious of the validity of that picture. I’m guessing Photoshop or some such nonsense. If not, someone would have a story and location to reference.
