IT’S A MON­STER, ALL RIGHT

The Family Handyman - - GREAT GOOFS - JEFF ROSS

My lat­est gear­head project was by far the most chal­leng­ing: con­vert­ing my stock Ford pickup to a manly mini mon­ster truck. I had tricked it out with a lift pack­age, gi­ant struts, enor­mous tires—the whole bit! When it was done, I couldn’t wait to take it out to show my friends and maybe even do a lit­tle “mud­ding.”

But as I was get­ting ready to drive it out of the garage, I came to the ridicu­lously late re­al­iza­tion that my truck was too darn high to get through the door! With my tail be­tween my legs, I had to take off the wheels, rest the truck on dol­lies and have a tow truck pull it out like a beached whale. Noth­ing manly about that.
