Cool. I saw one where they pulled old travel trailers, pretty much the same mayhem.

Thanks Blazin, That was the best laugh I've had for a quite a while. I started laughing about the time they were stripping the innards out, and didn't stop until they were driving them home. (yes I like gratuitous wanton vehicle destruction ...field bombs on steriods)

You know that video had to cost some money.

I keep debating what to do with my 78 24' Tioga. 225000 miles.

The coach part is thrashed, all the tanks leak, nothing that runs on propane is functional at all, (even the propane tank leaks). The interior looks like it was a wolf kennel.
The rear end is shot, with 3/16 of sideplay in the carrier, and the steering box has about 1/2 turn either way before anything starts happening at the front wheels.....
But it does have a good running , warmed over 440.

So how do we start?
I think the American version should be on a dirt track...

WhooHOO!

Later, mikey

That was some funny stuff! LMAO. The commentator has a show on the BBC network, I saw one where they had to buy an American car in Florida for less than a $1000, drive to Louisiana and sell it for the most they could to win. Funny stuff. The BBC network has some pretty good shows. Dan

Yeah my collection of illegally parked broken down cars is viewed with great interest by all who pass by...especially my landlady, who couldn't understand why my car trailer needed to be backed in..

M'Kay

That 'stang was bought new by my parents in '69, I got it when I was 16..it's a roach now, but I don't think I can ever get rid of it.

You guys should check out some of the other stuff from that "Topgear" show that is on youtube. The show about why topgear hates the f150 lightning is kind of dry, but has some gems that almost made me dribble coffee out my nose.

We need to find a place between here and Mn to do some motorhome racing...then I'll need to save up about 2500. for gas to get there...

Somehow I think mine is gonna be a one way trip..(the motorhome , anyway)

Later, mikey

Too funny. Most youtube stuff is just stupid. I haven't laughed at anything on the net like that in a long time. I used to work on RVs in the early 80s. We used to take the long body short wheel base mini motorhomes out and do wheelies by going brake, gas, brake, gas until we would pull the front wheels off the ground.

My first RV could have won some drags with its healthy 440. I suprised more than a few people runing around town when I launched it from a traffic light. I went from a real quick RV to the slowest one ever made, A Winnebago Lesharo with a 4 cyl Renault drive train.

I was thinking the same thing. That's pretty funny. I don't have an RV but I might be able to borrow my dads. His has a 460. We could have an old fashioned Detroit grudge match...
