Why hang a bucket on a car

Surely many drivers paid attention to the bucket suspended on the stern or side of the truck. Rarely, this is also found in passenger cars, and usually in large-aged specimens of domestic production, where the bucket is not real, but souvenir and miniature. Where did this custom come from, found out "Avtozglyad."
Most often, this item is attached to the hitch, but it happens on the muffler, or towing hook. In a traffic jam, the sight of a bucket swinging like a pendulum has a calming effect on many. But, of course, this is his most important destination.
There are several versions of the origin of such a custom, and all of them, as it turns out, complement each other.
The first hypothesis can be called historical. It turns out that in ancient times the bucket hung on any carriage and cart. When on the streets of Russian cities hosted horse-drawn transport, and the bearing had not yet been put into mass production, every cab driver had a bucket of tar for lubricating the hub of a wooden wheel.Perhaps it was from the cab drivers that the drivers of the first cars borrowed the custom, which became a talisman on the road.
The second version is practical. Most of the experienced truckers and truck drivers must have encountered a situation when “in the north” diesel fuel froze in the car in the cold frost. There was only one way out - to make a fire under the tank in order to melt the fuel. In road conditions, the easiest way to do this is in the cherished bucket.
The third version of the origin of the bucket on the machine can be considered the most convincing. In Soviet times, the water that was used in the cooling system instead of antifreeze and antifreeze, often boiled, and it had to be constantly refilled. In the summer, it could happen anywhere, so every driver or tractor driver would not go anywhere without a bucket. Water in such a situation was collected where necessary - in the nearest apartment, a street column, a well, or a nearby pond. In addition, the bucket could always be useful on the road for some other household needs, for example, in order to wash the car. Since there was usually not enough space in the cabin, it was attached outside.
So this attribute has become so accustomed to Russian cars that it has become an integral part of their exterior, and for many of our compatriots has turned into a real talisman, promising a trouble-free trip.
