Extraordinary (Idiotic) Drivers and Their Magnificent Machines

Trunk enhancements... and still hauling way to much!
















Arrrgh! -



Trailers are fair game, too

When you lack the funds to buy actual trailer, then everything "similar to it" can be used - with varied success:






Exceptional parking as a way of life.

Some parking photos will make you wonder, how on Earth could that happen? -
