Some of the best emergency repair supplies you should keep in your vehicle is a roll of duct tape, a tube of J-B Weld, a razor knife, and flashlight.

I am not sure of the US vernacular, but here in my part of northern England, a sort of 'bodge', which is like a temporary repair to something, can be known as a 'get-you-home' repair -

One from experience.. Broke down in the Aussie outback, 175km to the nearest town at around 10pm.. Luckily a car came past which is quite a rare thing In such a remote location..
The only problem never had a tow rope..
The solution I came to was to cut a seatbelt out of the back and used that.. Got me 175km no problem..
Not a great one as it causes damaging that needs repairing but as I say one from personal experience..
