I’d liek to believe that the guy saw a classic car and thought, look at those beautiful leather bonnet straps. I need those. But instead of adding leather straps to his generic midsize sedan, he ran a ratchet strap from fender to fender.

I’m thinking the more likely scenario is that his POS hood wouldn’t stay closed and he thought, yes, this is a good idea, i’ll use a ratchet strap instead of fixing it.
