    So....your BOV breaks down before you can reach your BOL....what'ya gunna do?? Call the bush mechanics of course!

    The bush mechanics feature in an Australian TV series called "The Bush Mechanics" of course. They make some rough and ready quick fixes when stuck stranded out of Cooee of roadside assistance. Not a pretty sight what they sometimes do to get a stalled car going again. You might just weep tears at having to butcher your expensive pristine SUV in an emergency, but it could just save your bacon if you're in a fix.

    Vehicles will run a long time w/o an alternator, smog pump, power steering, and air conditioner. Just keep that water pump going a little. Fancy electronic wonders are fine as long as they work. My old twenty and thirty yr old vehicles just keep plugging along. Have a couple over fifty just sitting under sheds.

    Seen a show on Cuba they were still running around in 1950 autos seems that some people make a living over there by having a small smelter in their back yard and make parts using hand tools.
