That truck is one of the more interesting ones. When it came to the show, it sputtered and died in the middle of the path, so the owner asked for help to give it a shove while he engages the clutch to get the engine going. So myself and 2 other guys start pushing. That car is not heavy at all.

Not only that! It can also give you any color images as long as it's black and white.

I really like the way you think.

That is the Volkswagen reality distortion field.

Land Rover people have the same affliction, except they can't do anything about that spare tire right where the driver needs to see the road.

Hmmm... I wonder if there's a Land-Rover car show around here.
