Snap an axle while out and about? The temporary fix is just a wagon away. Of course, you might need a friend (or a spouse?) to assist you![:X]

I suppose you could get away with that if you had a TT axle, or a chain between the first car and the second.

Hadn't thought.....Hmmm....Studebaker didn't make any FWD cars did they?

Is the car being "carted" a late model Yugo?

No, NATO bombed the YUGO plant back in the 1990's.

I wonder if that is a Kia Pride (Ford Festiva) or maybe a Renault?

Oops, yes it is a Yugo.

A 1980's one.

I bet a lot of former Yugo owners cheered!
