To shoot the bear that comes to eat you while you are putting the chains on..............................
Back when men were men. They even made their own acetylene to gas weld
You can tell that the guy riding shotgun, doesn't own the car, or even ever work on it. Just wants to ride around in it looking cool trying to pick up chicks. this type of person always takes advantage of his friends, always borrowing a few bucks for gas or a burger. Yea, this is the type of person who shows up late when you want to go some somewhere. When you go to the Friday night, school dance, he always gets the best looking girls to dance with him and to go behind the curtains on the stage. In later life, this guy gets a high paying job doing nothing because of who is father is. One last item, he also is married to Ms. Mississippi, 1975. But then again, I could be all wrong about this guy, whoever he is.
You don't see the guy riding shot here with his foot on the dashboard, probably a "stand up guy".
Those tire chains work wonders. I used them a couple times. One on a 66 Bonneville. We just had a snow storm and I was going down the alley but the car started going up in the air. Snow was all piled up under the car. Neighbor had a 74 Ford 4 wheel pick up. We chained them together and the truck tried pulling the Big Bonne up the hill, as soon as the chain snaped tight the truck stopped and wouldn't move an inch..
So my dad comes out and hands me this old wooden crate. There were a few different sets of chains. I removed the skirts jacked the car up with a hyd jack and put them on. I got them real tight like the old-time mechanic who was watching and holding a trouble light from his garage.
Got them on, warmed the car up, let it sit in drive for five minutes and reverse for another five, like the old guy said so I dont burn the transmission out. He said a lot of transmissions go bad because of people spinning the tires with a cold engine and transmission.
Put it in reverse and that big boat dug down, found the road and backed itself right up the hill, no trouble..
I run chains on my tractor all year round, they help in the dirt too.
The guy behind the wheel didn't build it either or the shotgun would have been tossed out. Both guys look familiar, maybe B movie actors? They look like Joe Collage posing for a pic?
