God sees the future, and was just doing a little preemptive punishing.

Evidently this Historic Vehicle Association, I never heard of, was formed a few years ago with funding from Hagerty Insurance, to decide what cars are historically important in North America. They are affiliated with some other groups around the world to tell us rabble what's what. Eh. They just added their 8th pick. :rolleyes:

I've seen pictures of these boxed jeeps before, but also whole jeeps in cargo slings, and being driven on ships by ramps. Boxing is expensive and materials/labor intensive, plus then you have to move the box somehow. I finally read they only boxed then when they absolutely had to, but that was still a lot.

Here's the story

I remember ads in the backs of magazines in the 70s where you could buy a boxed jeep for $5. I wonder if anyone ever actually did that? Had to be BS.

If you read the fine print, it usually said send us money and we'll send you a list of secret government auctions. What you got was a copy of a free government publication listing government surplus auctions.

My guess is, he did his burnout to prep the slicks, and backing up to the line the guy on the ground was dancing along side wiping the loose rubber off tire with a rag, when he got his foot caught. Hope they get him out before the adrenaline wears off. :thepain:

Gravdigr 06-01-2016 02:55 PM

Ow, OW!!!

He may be in pain, but he sure knows he's going to get yelled at.
I'd guess that rail weighs in the neighborhood of 1500 lbs with driver, and some is of course on the front wheels. The wrinkle walls probably run 9 to 13 psi so they are pretty forgiving. That means he may not be seriously hurt, but he fucked up and they probably had to shut it down before it overheated. That's a forfeited race = Yelled at, even fired. :unsure:

A beetle may get the plow driver to the plow, but this is so wrong it's a travesty :rolleyes:
