Quickbeam, no can't beat that one.
Did however drive 100 miles to a scrapyard and remove a rear axle from a wreck. Drove 50 miles to my Opel Kapitan parked at the roadside and replaced the rear axle and drove 100 miles home. A rear bearing had failed. No replacement available. Plus the differential was shot and full of sawdust.
That was in the early 60's. Can hardly raise a sponge to clean the car these days let alone a hammer and screwdriver.!!
