Default Jim Bob'* towing service....lol.

Just caught this on the local news page. I'd like to say I'm surprised to see it, but honestly we are a bunch of rednecks here in upstate NY. It was probably one of those "Hold my beer, I'll git r done!" moments.

I really can't figure out how that car hasn't flipped out. I understand the engine is in front, but really, the pivot point is in front of the B pillar. And then the strap is behind that. Take off a little to fast and it flips right out of there. So unless it'* some how chained in the front, it'* hard to believe that'* real.

There'* a link to the news video on that site I posted. WICZ is one of the local stations here. They do have other shots of this. I know, its hard to believe, but we have some crazy idiots up here.
