4 Drums of Liquid Nitrogen in W124 Wagon?

I've got a bunch of liquid nitrogen I need to pick up, it's about a 4 hour drive one-way and I figured since my wagon can haul just about anything and the SLS will pick up the extra weight, do you think I should do it?

The rear seats fold down and I can just slide those drums in there no problem, I just tried with some empty drums and it worked like a champ.

I'll drive slow and stay in the right line, I don't think I'd get hit or anything if I did that.

Oh yeah, it's a diesel too, so the extra torque will probably come in handy to carry the extra weight, right?












pssst. this is a joke. I am pulling your leg. This post made me do it: Will a 55gallon drum of methanol fit in my trunk?

It depends on the weight and how you can secure them.

The wagon can only handle about 1000lbs of additional weight and unsecured drums can be lethal if you have to suddenly stop. Especially Liquid Nitrogen. If one breaks open it can cause severe burns.

Pouring it on bike locks and then smashing the lock with a hammer. I lost my bike lock key. I have a lot of bikes.

Do you think a thick wetsuit would be enough protection, I have an old one lying around. I even have the booties and head attachment, it'll probably work perfect come to think of it.

If one of them leaks, you'll look like Mr. Freeze.

Anyone ever put their hand in liquid nitrogen? It's cool for about ...0.5 a second and then it starts to tingle a little.

That's pretty spendy stuff as I recall. Justin, is it for your MRI in your place?

If you do manage to get it home without killing yourself...........how are you going to store it? It won't last very long without some extreme refrigeration.

I hauled three 55 gallon drums full of oil in the back of my 123 wagon with no issues. Just make sure you have good ventilation-like the windows open, you can easily suffocate if there is even a small leak of N2 in a confined space like a car.
