20 Car Owners Who Got Really Creative With Their Repairs.

Funny |

No need for screws, nuts, and framing to keep your stereo in place when you can just keep it in with planks of wood.

Once you reach a certain age, the thought of owning your very own car seems exciting to you. You can picture yourself driving across the country, feeling true freedom for the first time. What most people don't realize, until they're in the midst of loan payments, is how much of a huge responsibility it is to take care of a vehicle. If you think about it, regular maintenance alone can get to be a bit pricey. Oil changes, tune-ups, and rotating your tires, are just a few of the things you have to make sure you keep up on, or you'll have a much bigger bill on your hands in the long run. Not to mention how expensive it gets when something really happens to your car, such as an accident. That's when the money really starts flying out of your wallet. When this happens, you better hope you have enough money saved, or you'll end up like the people in these pictures. These car owners took repairs into their own hands, and let's just say, they didn't do the greatest of jobs.

To save yourself the trouble of getting pulled over for not having headlights, it's no problem to just use soda bottles.

If you have scraps of wood hanging around your house, there's not really any need to ever go to the scrapyard.

Keeping your pipes in place is simple, as long as you use some creativity and zip ties.

You never have to worry about not being able to open you door when you have a rubber band and a fork.

This guy didn't even bother fixing it. That's the only explanation he needs.

Honestly, this one is actually a pretty good idea. It's at least better than using wood.

This handle is not only used for opening the door, it can open bottles when you're tailgating at a game with friends, too.

Duct tape fixes everything else, so why not car doors?

This person is obviously in complete denial that they need an entirely new car.

Sometimes, putting a band-aid on it, and hoping it heals on its own, is the only way to go.

Looks like they need a lot more tape. Or maybe they just need a whole new car.

With the use of bungee cords, some rope, and a bit of ingenuity, you can keep that door shut nice and tight!
