If civilization falls there will be plenty of dead cars to rebuild it

Open Source Machine

The MultiMachine starts there but adds many other functions. It can be a 10- in-1 (or even more!) machine tool that is built by using vehicle engine blocks in a LEGO-like fashion. The MultiMachine uses 6 unusual construction techniques to build 5 very simple “modules” that bolt to a worn out or broken vehicle or industrial engine block.

* Using engine blocks as building blocks is the first MultiMachine feature. Since cylinder bores are bored exactly parallel to each other and at exact right angles to the cylinder head surface, MultiMachine accuracy begins at the factory where the engine block was built.

This thing fascinates me. If I had endless time and a place to manipulate several tons of metal and concrete I would be so there.
