Towed problem solved

:P :P
These people have solved the question of how to get your car to your destination



This could open up a whole new discussion.
How do I get my crane/forklift to my destination to unload it?
Will my destination have a really tall ramp?
What is the best procedure for packing the stuff under the car?
Can I carry really long ramps so that I can load my car myself?
Is there a map that shows where the 18 foot underpasses are?
If I also carry my boat, can I leave it hooked to the car?
What are the pros and cons of tying down the car?
If I tie it down, what are the best tie down points?
Where do I get tires for my bus with a load limit of 50,000 lbs each?

The possibilities are endless.

Please post your comments/questions here.

Re: Towed problem solved

Is it possible that these buses might be a little top heavy?

I love your style.

But

Photoshop.

Blow up the pic to about 300% and you will see the uneven pixels. Someone pasted and tried to blend the cars on top.

Re: Towed problem solved

Plus it would never pass a DOT inspection at a check point. It has .....failure to properly secure a load all of over it.... even if it is photoshopped.
