Not for the faint of heart

I was looking for bumpers for my newly aquired diesel truck when I came across this:

Those trucks are light weights, couldn't even break the glass! Someone drive over it with a MOG and show they how its done.

Bet if you were to add their CUMULATIVE odometer readings as the trucks were fed into the car crusher ... The old MB would have the last laugh!

I'd like to see what a Taurus looks like under three trucks!

Happy Motoring, Mark
