Default Why you don't run over junk in the road.

FIX THIS ?????

A Woman Ran Over A Mattress On The

Highway And Decided Not To Worry And

Kept Driving.

The Ensuing Jumble Finally Whipped

Around Enough to Tear A Hole In The

Fuel Tank.

The Subsequent Lack Of Fuel Is What

Finally Brought Her Vehicle To It's Knee's.

She Had Still Managed To Drive 30 More

Miles With A 60 Pound Tangle of Stuff

Wrapped Around Her Driveshaft.

She Had It Towed To Her Dealership And

Complained That The Vehicle Had A

"Sort Of Shimmy" When She Was Driving

At High Speeds.

Below Are The Photo's Of What They

Found At Her Dealership.








The Last Photo Is By Far The Best.
"Sort Of A Shimmy", I'll Bet It Did!
They Still Can't Believe Their Eyes.
And Still Wondering How To Remove It.

I'm sorry to say she was probably elderly. (OK I will say it - a blue hair).

...or young, yapping on the cell phone while yelling at her kids, with the tunes at WOT and her head up her yahuh :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Any bets on how long it took to remove this mess ?

What method?

What did it cost her ?

My guess;

4 hrs
bolt cutters
$500

Plus a fuel tank, a pinion seal, possible exhaust repair, maybe fuel and brake line repair and a driveshaft.

Nah double -d- we would just use a torch at our dealership to remove as much as we could then unbolt driveline, your dollar amount is right :!: :!:
