Gotta love that photo. I've seen it before too. The Chivvy guys were pray-oud of thar brutha.

Was once following a vulture in a pickup who stole pallets from behind warehouses in a district of Dallas where I worked. He lost part of his load in not clearing a 16' clearance bridge. I was helpful in calling the po-po from a booth as some of those pallets cost me money . . in the good old days before massive immigration they had time and men to get there in time to make things right. Yes, I got my six $12 pallets back.

Takes all kinds.

My guess is that they had the truck too far down in the ditch when they loaded the taurus in the back of it. Noticed that they didn't get the car sitting on the bed of the truck evenly.

The photos sure look real to me. Look at the damage to the truck's bed from the front tires of the car. The same damage is seen in the second (smaller) photo where the police SUV has stopped the parade. Photoshopping both pictures would be a chore.

I wish people would stop all this weight police crap. They complain to us all the time!

We have no problems as long as both of us are sitting in the front seats . . . I just can't join Weight Watchers!

I have to say that it is real. You can see the dent on the bed from the tire plus you can see where the strap has dented the door on the Ford. If some one did Photo Shop this they have way too much time on their hands. LOL

Yes, this photo made the rounds here last year!!!

There were a few other photos that showed closeups of how the car was secured. A strap runs through the front windows of the car, through the front windows of the truck, securing them together.

There is also a photo of the cop pulling them over.
