RE: Cars came with tool kits?

by Z-man51

Not the cars I owned but I soon remedied that problem. Back when I started driving (1967) a tool kit could consist of a flathead and Phillips screwdriver, Cresent wrench, a matchbook and/or nail file, hammer, bailing wire, duct tape and a flashlight (because cars never broke down in daylight). With those few tools you could repair 80% of breakdowns. Spare tires were full-sized, lug wrenches were solid steel and jacks fit into slots in the bumpers. You had a flat, you changed tires and kept driving. None of this 50 miles at 50 mph.
Now days, if your car breaks down you call a tow truck and take it to a mechanic who has to hook up a computer to find out what to fix. These new cars ain't no fun.
