    I have read other humorous posts about what some creative mechanics have done to vehicles and wanted to give you all a chuckle or groan when you see this one. It is a 1972 Satellite that I'm getting back on the road.

    All I could figure out is they welded the metal on to maybe prevent bottoming on speed bumps. They are too high to drag them and make a spark show on pavement. Could not be to add strength. Already cut one off before taking pics.

    All I can think of is some mind altering chemicals going on.

      We have a Winner.

      If the welded in metal was not there, the tranny pan and driveline could be damaged if the car was lifted by a long forklift.

      Uhhhh what the hell was all that? Maybe they wanted a place so they could use their scissor jack from their Volvo. What some people do or think will never be known because I wouldn't even dare to ask the owner for fear I may start laughing at him & piss them off.
