I bought a '52 Cadillac convertible years ago. It had a slew of wooden clothes pins on the fuel line to the carburetor. I took 'em off and it still ran. Has anyone ever heard an explanation of how the clothes pin cure is supposed to work?

An old geezer around here used to drive a '48 Plymouth around town. He had "vapor lock" problems in hot weather, which he dealt with by wrapping a tow sack around the fuel pump. He'd pull in a gas station and buy 50 cents worth of gas and tell the attendant to "wet down my tow sack".
