It’s dripping here, foiling my outdoor work plans for another day. Time to change gears, along with some goofy Outtakes from around the world, not just Eugene. Here’s another in our Overloaded Pickup series. Anybody recognize the carcass? I did briefly wonder if it was a photochop, but then this wagon (minus its drive train) probably only weighs a ton. A couple more:
Sometimes, one just has to be creative in making it all fit. Or?
In Europe, the mandatory recycling of automobiles has been taken to a new level. Time to go back to work…
First picture looks like a Ford Exploder….errr…..Explorer.
The hapless cargo (in the first picture, that is!) seems to be the Renault R12-based Dacia 1300 or 1310 wagon …
Yeah, I’ll go with the R12/Dacia. The taillamps are a giveaway on that.
Heck, even with the drivetrain, it’s not much more than a ton! 🙂
I have to admit – I’ve been there, done that. I built a Lotus Seven style car from a partial kit which I brought home in the back of my wife’s minivan … got some odd looks that day as it was about a 200 km drive home.
No photo, but I had my wife deliver the upper wings for my WWI fighter plane replica (Nieuport 11) from my friends house in Georgia to our home in the Middle West – strapped to the top of our minivan. She wasn’t a really happy camper when she got home – too much attention!
I imagine that must have looked something like this, Ed? 🙂
LOL! Here’s a shot of the trailer when we brought everything out of storage to the farm when we first moved in… Doesn’t really count, as it’s on a proper trailer, but I’m sure we were a distraction going down the road just the same. That’s the Nieuport 11 airframe on top (it’s eventually to be VW-powered as well).
This looks like a good day to share this one. I was slow on the draw with the camera, so you cannot really make out the cargo. It’s a kitchen sink.
Re: the motorcycle pic: Looks like the woman has lower priority than the chicken! Do you think that’s a good ground for a divorce? 😉
Picture two: I assume the bulge in front of the woman’s face is accidental. I hope it’s accidental . . . . . . .
