    When I worked at the Shell station in high school, we had a few regular customers like that. Always nice folks, but I hated serving them because the pervasive aroma of doG knows how old McDonald'd deep fried grease was enough to invoke the gag reflex as soon as they rolled down the window.
    I've never been a neat freak, but I just don't get how people could put up with that.:dunno

    Screw NJ and their "you can't be trusted to own scary looking guns or pump your own gas" laws. :lol3

    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.

    I call fake. We all know he would have already gone over the handlebars if he used his front brake :D

    Edit: Beaten by mr_gone... Oh well.

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

    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! :eek1

    A guy just picked up a used engine from me driving a 'turtletop' from NC, towing a trailer with a garden tractor on it! Oh, and he had installed a TDI engine in it; sounded awesome!

    I drove one of those things all over Australia.

    [​IMG]

    Loved driving it, 80-85kph was typical cruise, and once with a big tail wind I got it way over 100kph. Felt like we were flying. It was a seemingly rare fuel injected motor with automatic transmission. Feel like the trans really helped the wrong side driving issue. No need to figure out how to shift with my left hand. Great little vehicle and only found out we'd burned some exhaust valves when we went to sell it right before leaving.




    In Darwin we had some ears made to direct more airflow into the engine compartment. You can kind of see them here..

    [​IMG]

    ... defintely kept the oil temp down, but it was probably too little too late as I think the drive from Adelaide to Darwin is what did the motor in.

    I'd love to own one again with a real motor, and better suspension. :ricky
