I was sent this link from a friend of mine. I cannot believe that: 1. Someone could do this to their car. 2. That someone would do this to a car. 3 That both parties involved, did do this to a car.

They are going to need more than any advice given in this forum, that is for sure! :p

I just had to email that one to all my friends and family!

Too funny! LOL

"No Honey, it will be fine,.... don't worry about it, we'll just put all the stuff on the roof!"

Can anybody tell, is that a Hyundia, Jetta, or Chevy something?

Thats a funny picture, but you CAN'T believe it is real!
There are so many reasons why that pic is just a PhotoShop job. That twine would never hold that load. That front wheel drive Jetta would NEVER be able to move an inch with its front wheels practially off the ground, and the chassis driving into the rear wheels. I'm not sure the roof would handle that load. No one at a lumber yard would EVER have loaded up a car like that, not matter what waivers were signed.
Still funny, though.

I must agree, that is a doctored picture. You can see in the front wheel well where it has been messed with. However, it is kinda funny
