How in the hell did that not explode? Looks like the screw handle is resting on the opposite battery post/cable.

ROFLMAO!!!!! Whats funny is I owned that car, in that color! 1992 Buick Park Avenue with DynoRide. The best riding and most comfortable car I ever owned, bar none. Plus fat seats that would make the GXP jealous.

That clamp fix must've worked for awhile, you can see the corrosion growing on it

I wish I had a picture of a "fix-it" I did one time. I had a 74 Pinto- did so many hole shots I broke a motor mount and it layed the motor over to where it vibrated on the frame. So, I being the smartest 19 year old on the planet at the time, wire tied a scissor jack to the intake manifold and jacked it against the fender well resting on some flip-flop vibration isolators.
It worked well I might add-until one day I was struck with catastrophic failure- again, had to be a race car driver- holeshot- then a second gear power shift- at about what time the jack hits the fan....-blades go through the hood, out the left hand fender, and the rh fender- there was a main power harness on one side, don't remember which- but 1 1/2" thick bundle of wires- So imagine a 5000 rpm shift- within a milisecond- anti-freeze-electrical sparks unsustainable vibrations small underhood explosion--- Wish we had you tube back then- I would have been a star.
I still traded that car for a Winchester pump 12gauge and 2 Mustang II'* -
