When I worked on a farm in the 70s we were always trying to do as much as we could with what we had. Here is an example of that. This gas pedal came off my 1941 Coe that was owed by a farmer. The gas pedal has a hole in it from pushing on the pedal so hard and it was bent also.

LOL! When at the dragstrip, I used to tell the guys that wanted to go faster to mash the go-pedal harder. And if that didn't work, that they'd need to hammer a depression in the firewall. wink
