    Nice of them to leave the milk crate. That's only 1 step away from being a bucket seat!

      By one step, do you mean "flip it over," or "replace it with an actual bucket"?

        I was thinking the latter, but the former would be a performer.

    Actually it looks like they were in the middle of a restoration project, and didn't want someone hot wiring the car. I once knew someone that drove a car to the body shop for painting, with a lawn chair for a driver's seat. No kidding.
    Looking at the steering wheel and the dash, it's a '71 or '72 Mercury Cougar.

      On the topic of driving cars with parts missing, I know a guy who claims to have regularly driven his project car with a Vise-Grip for a steering wheel. Don't ask me me why.

        Because he could.

        I J-B Welded a screwdriver in place for a turn signal stalk on my old Blazer for a while. Not near a scary as a Vise-Grip steering wheel. I hope they were real Vise-Grips and not the crappy Craftsman knock-offs.

          J-B Weld is great stuff. I stay away from the J-B Kwik Weld, though. Never had great luck with it. I've seen cracked exhaust manifolds fixed with J-B, and other stuff like loose wheel bearing races. Amazing.

        It's easy if you have power steering. If you don't, well…

          Just put a pipe over the handle of the vice-grips for extra leverage.

      When we had the Willy's Jeep we had boat seats sitting on wood blocks. It came that way and we were to amused to change it…plus we only used it on the farm to run junk up to the dump so I wasn't *too* scared about dying.

    In the early '90s, I had a friend in Miami who had a white late Rabbit convertible with white leather interior. One morning he found that all off his seats had been stolen from the car. He ended up driving to work sitting on a milk crate.

      His boyfriend must have been pissed!

        He's straight (married with 3 kids now). But that didn't stop us from teasing him about his sorority girl's dream car.

    Hey, I'm fully convinced that The Club kept my truck from being stolen back when I lived in the city and it was parked in a dark alley behind the house I lived in at the time. Didn't keep the battery from being stolen, though.

      I had a friend who swore by the club until his steering column was stolen… irony's a bitch!

    Nah, this guy's just prepping his car for the next LeMons race. Our SHO has the same setup right now.
