It's been done more than once. I remember reading in Pop. Mechanics back in the early 60's late 50's of a similar stunt that coincided with the Mobil Economy Run. I believe it was a Caddy with about one hundred instruments on the dash.

A friend of mine bought a new Impala SS that was built just before a strike.
It was supposed to have had a 327 in it....

MARTINSR There is a late 70's Honda Civic out there somewhere with a dolly of mine in the quarter panel. Remember it well, a yellow Civic.

So THATS where my hammer went?
Back when I was a teen I replaced a tie rod end on my buds car and left a hammer on the control arm ,it got stuck in the spring and every time he went over a bump it hit the frame making a loud noise he said it wasnt doing THAT before,when I looked under the car I saw it and pulled it out ,we had a good laugh

Now, what makes you think that?
That just shows why nobody who works in production will buy whatever product they make...
They know what really happens on the assembly line
