Shawn C 1978 Chevrolet Malibu Classic 2dr Sport Coupe

Redneck engineering

Cousin calls me, she was broken down in a parking lot, car started and ran, but would only idle. I get there sure enough the ground cable was just loose enough it was using the throttle cable as the ground and melted it. Tightened the cable, grabbed some string, tied it to the carb linkage, routed it around the hood bumpers and right to the drivers window. Drove it home for her so we could replace the throttle cable, She couldn't understand how I could drive using my hand for the throttle!
