Houston, we have a problem

Buddy of mine snapped this honest-to-gosh taken today cell phone pic... sorry for the poor quality, but safety must come first when youre rocketing down Houston highways.... I blurred out the tag to protect the guilty.

Man, I hope this isn't a member here, someone obviously woke up this morning and thought, "Hey, the local-mega-home-improvement retailer is having a SALE on ladders, so let's take the Camaro"!!!!!!!

Buy one get one free on 8' ladder. Guess they took it seriously when they said "while supplies last". Had to take the fastest car, c'mon what's wrong with that? Lol

No seriously I would laugh my butt off looking at that. And at the same time worry about following behind him so close. Ha ha

Ok, what?? So having a sports car isn't practical if you can't own a truck as well? Regardless of your ridiculous judgment issues. Trucks are very expensive, use a lot of gas and not everyone wants to own them. I certainly don't and I chose my camaro and do not care what people think. She sees the rain, the shine and the snow and does just fine.

I guess I'm not practical either but at least I enjoy what I drive.

Easy there tough guy. No need to get your feathers ruffled. If you want to DD your Camaro and strap a 25' ladder to the top of it, that is your choice. I applaud you. All I was stating is that there are better options for a DD than a Camaro. Small backseat, tiny trunk, little ground clearance, etc.. I'm an outdoors kind of guy. If I only had my Camaro, it would be a little tough. Strap a deer to the roof, fold down the backseats for fishing rods, park on the road and walk 3 miles to your tree stand???

I see nothing wrong with this. the owner seemed to have tied it down great, and put padding down so the ladder doesn't scratch the roof. I don't think he/she did this for fun. Just something they had to do.
