Default Inappropriate vehicles

Was at a auction preview this morning of a steel supplier, in checking the auctioneers site on how things were going, found these vehicles listed as inappropriate for loading out after the auction.

Hell, thats part of the fun of going to sales, after people watching. I take pictures of such stuff.

I too previewed a sale this morning, its a monthly event going on for 30 years now at least every other month there is a good one at that sale, its construction surplus. Common denominator, of course is overloaded,

I saw one clown with an E150 conversion van, he had so much negative tongue weight, he was stuck on dry flat ground...

Reminds of some of the vehicles I've seen loaded at HD.

I watched a guy win a motorcycle, drive it out of the yard, hit full throttle and smash into a parked car

Left his thumb laying in the street.
