I am sure that a policeman would be impressed. It reminds me of last week when I brought a 125 bd ft of cherry home in my Dakota pickup. No where as bad as this, but the truck was a little light in the front end.

I’m thinking that that could be more than a ton of lumber. How dumb.

There is text that goes with this picture, when it originally started circulating a few years ago. The driver was running around, disoriented, and caught the attention of the cops. When they checked on the well-being of the passenger, they noticed that there was also twelve bags of cement in the back seat, at 80 lbs each. The rear shocks were driven through the floorboards. he alloy wheels were broken. This happened near an Interstate between the Ala/Florida border. The owner of this car intended to build a garage with these materials. I’ll try to find a copy of the original email, it’s fascinating! Thankls for posting this, Abbott! I’d forgotten this one!

Jag,
Thanks for the snopes reference. I didn’t think of that!
