a reply to: StoutBrouxtrouble is even if you had an older vehicle all the roads will be littered with the abandoned vehicles
that no longer work so travel at best will be on foot or on a bicycle.
You can't walk out of that town like Las Vegas, in the summer the heat would kill you.
If you have family to bring along just hope for the best.
That happened to me in 1978, a friend and I had taken a Vegas motel room with AC to get a good nights sleep.
In the morning when we tried to start the car nothing. Overnight someone had knackered the distributor with a drill.
Luckily I noticed they were nice enough to leave me one screw with thread to hold the points in place.
That meant I could loosen the hod down bolt and turn the distributor from Tow Truck to Lamb.
Once we made it to Lamb I didn't know what to ask for, I couldn't remember if there was a Windsor, Cleveland or UFO under the hood. They just
pointed at the rows of sand blasted relics out back, I don't think they even charged me for the breaker plate assembly.
Only 9 minutes from there back to cold AC, rehydration and a drill. Still made it to four corners NM to sleep.
