This is where the "throw away" moniker comes from. The average person does not want to fix their shit let alone pay more to do it so they just get a new one. The bean counters don't give a shit about the onesey twosey folks who want a quality product that can be repaired easily and cost effectively. They care about the exponentially higher amount of folks that will buy a new whatever.

The "kids" that are "hotrodding" throw away vehicles are the ones that could barely afford the thing to begin with, can't afford to have it fixed properly, and can't afford a new one.

And FTR, "hotrodding" is just another word for "jury rigging"
