I did a temp repair to an old automatic yank tank I borrowed when my leg was in plaster many years back, when the throttle cable broke on the freeway.

Almost fly by wire, but this was fly by fishing line ( thats all I could find in the car ) tied on to the carbs throttle, hooked round the wing mirror, back into the drivers window.

It worked and got me home, but try and picture the acceleration pulling away as the line stretched until the throttle moved !

You couldnt do that on a new BMW !
With my mobile phone I can call people and talk to them -  how smart can you get ?
