Pick up a can of Testors #1605 transparent candy apple red spray paint and shoot a few coats on those taillight lenses.

Good call. Looking at the pics from today, I'm just noticing how bad they're really getting.

Right there with ya.

I am impressed though. I like how you got the cherry picker in there with it and the base strapped to the roof

Reminds me of mine. I had a full 91 turbo motor with AW still full of fluid and connected:

Not much sagging really. Made the 4 hour drive without a problem.

I have a full ej205 longblock with all accessories in the back of my wagon. I will have to snap a few pictures.

+1 for not needing a pick up.

One time I was hauling a motor for my grandma's Toyota truck in my wagon. When I got on the freeway I saw an e36 M3 coming up on my left side so I decided to play with them. Needless to say all they saw was the motor tumbling back and slamming my rear hatch as I blew by them. Who needs a truck?
