    Where I used to work I saw a guy do this to three different cars - a Ford Tempo, a Chevy Suburban, and I think a LTD. So loaded down with junk (mostly fast food wrappers/cups/?) that the suspension was crushed, and eventually the vehicles just died from being so overloaded.

    He didn't live in it, either.

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

    I'll hurt myself trying to reach over to pick up an errant gum wrapper out of my floorboard...

    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.

    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
