California woman uses broken down car to inspire 'can do' video

A Sacramento-area woman decided used her broken down car as a teaching moment for others.

Rachael McKinney of Elk Grove said she's very comfortable with fix-it projects, so when her car window was busted, she didn't want to spend the money on hiring someone to replace it for her.

She grew up with a father who showed her how to fix things from a young age.

And she decided to share her how-to project -- starting with going to junkyards to find the correct window -- and posted her work on social media in hopes of inspiring other women.

"Since the video, I have gotten mentions from other women who said ‘you have informed me to fix my own car.’" 

McKinney said she hopes to pass along that attitude to her own daughter.
