Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
A friend had an on VW bug. Both the clutch and throttle cables broke. We rigged a pair of channel locks to the throttle and and toe-wrapped a stick to the clutch cable. There were no hydraulic brakes so we were already using the e-brake for stopping. So I'd drive and work stick and steering. He'd sit in back and work channel locks and e-brake. The bad part is we drove around for several weeks that way. Fun times.
