The complaint against the original equipment jacks is not new.

A Mechanix Illustrated reader in the 50s asked Tom McCahill why his $5000 car came with a $1 jack.

McCahill replied that the factory must have run out of 50 cent ones.

Even then they were considered inadequate and dangerous. The only excuse I can think of is that by the fifties tires were so reliable that they expected the car never to need the spare or jack. At least while the original purchaser owned it.
