Break Down while on the way

Well the thermostat stuck on the bird (1968 Ford Falcon) about 45 miles from Alpine and I spent several hours waiting for a tow truck to come that never did. This was about 45 miles from no where either way. I wound up letting it cool down and limped two miles to a rest area and that's where it spent the night. Me and my brother in law went back this morning and removed the thermostat and I managed to make it to alpine, but the radiator is leaking so I have to top it off about every 10 or so miles. I sure was glad to see that it she hadn't been molested over night! I call her Elna after my mom who bought the car new in 1968. Still 80 miles to go to get to my land. Auto Zone says they can't even order a rad for it. Right now it has plenty of BJ wet weld to try and stop the leak.
