What about some of the truly epic bodges done by people who made their living selling worn out  cars to people that couldn't afford to own them?

I'm thinking of a used car lot where nothing was priced over $499, circa 1960. 

Sawdust in the differential, anyone?

Saw this at an auction a few weeks back. The cup was so that the splice in the positive cable wouldn't short to ground.

I forgot about the Honda S600 I owned. The whole car was a bodge. The best part was the rear axle welded to the frame - ie no rear suspension at all!
