Every mechanic has at least one “Bubba Story”: improvised or half-hearted truck repairs that eventually find their way into your garage.
T and M Automotive of Omaha collect their favorite horror stories on their site. It's not for the faint of heart: be ready for dozens of butt-splices per foot of wire, HVAC onion domes where air intakes should be, and critical safety devices made of spit and spare copper.
If you are easily upset by vehicle abuse, take heart. In some cases, T and M post side-by-side pictures of their own work, putting these nightmares in proper order.
