And they are in a parking garage.....

Suppose they loaded it in the garage and the ceiling will be unloading it when they leave??

American morons.

This could get deadly really fast...

Anyone who'd even *think* about doing this needs to return their driving license to ther DMV with an apology.....

I mean, look at all the side trim that has been tore off this car already.

This is 3rd world insanity, I saw crap like this in Lima Peru all the time. For instance, right outside Jorge Chavez Intl airport at a stoplight was a red and white 1956 Ford Country Sedan station wagon, with about 10 big mattresses stacked on top of it.

Unbelievable.

But not particularly noteworthy in a country like that.

yeah, moron dropped a washing machine out of a pickup on the expressway up the road from me the other day. Following car #1 dodged it because he saw it happen. Car #2 braked. Car #3 didn't brake fast enough to avoid car #2. Driver of car #1 related the tale to me a few minutes after it happened. he was still shaking his head at that one.

Hey, they could just be poorly executed homages to The Homer.

Personally, I love the enclosed rumble seat feature for the kids.

STINKY: "Hey Vern! Get me some more of that thar' rope and twine and stuff there!"

VERN: "Sure Stinky! Hey, have you ever tried some of them thar' rachet-strap-thingies? I hear they're good for 500 pounds of holding power and all! That might getcha' down the road aferd' everythin' falls off and loose and stuff there..."

STINKY: "Naw! That's just wastin' gooder money after whatever! I's thinks if I wrap that thar' twine three or four times around the post there, it should hold just fine 'til I gits where I'm agoin'! Besides, If I's takes the back roads, if something falls off, I'll just come back an' pick it up later! Besides, no one's stoppin' to take my stuff anyhow!"

VERN: "Sounds like a plan. Oh! Hey! It's getting late! Let's take the highway and ride the right lane. We'll get there sooner and we'll finish up quickerer and all. Then, we'll pop a few barley-pops and celebrate a plan gone straight!"

STINKY: "Sounds good. You follow me and all's be fine!"

(As the two motor off into the darkness, "Dueling Banjos" rolls on up in the backround...fade to black...then the theme song from "JAWS" starts in...BuDump...BuDump...)
