I've never been a neat freak, but I just don't get how people could put up with that.

Screw NJ and their "you can't be trusted to own scary looking guns or pump your own gas" laws.

He didn't live in it, either.

I just don't understand why they let it build up that high???

Yeah right, so paper trash weighed so much in the car it broke the suspension? Why do people feel the need to make up stupid lies like this. That must have been some heavy paper, I guess those sheets of 52lb printer paper on my desk must really weigh 52lbs each.

Broken suspension bits probably had more to do with the driver, after eating that much fast food...

NC government plates. Probably either tire testing or something to do with road surface.

>"something to do with road surface."

In most states road surfaces must supply a certain amount of traction.
If not, the state puts them on a list for re-surfacing.

A buddy has a 67 turtle top camper with a slightly modified engine.

We took it down route 81 from Front Royal VA to Johnson City TN and back one weekend. We were doing 80 mph+ and passing everything on the highway!
