In light of the article on the front page with the person driving on a disintegrating wheel I got to thinking; what’s the furthest I’VE nursed a known broke vehicle home and what was the ailment?
Winter of ‘99-2000. I drove 50 miles or so with a stuck closed thermostat knowing full well it was stuck closed. To be fair it was about 5 degrees Fahrenheit out and the car in question had iron heads and an iron block. I knew no damage would occur and I wasn’t about to leave it at whatever ungodly hour it was (2 A.M.-ish?).
I ask you guys? What’s the furthest you’ve driven a broke car?
