This picture is real - not doctored in any way. It was taken by a Transportation Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber.

When he saw it in the parking lot of IHOP, he ran to buy a camera to take pictures.

The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust.

A woman is either asleep or otherwise out of it in the front seat passenger side. The driver was jogging up and down on Rt. 925.(in the background) The driver finally came back after the police were called, and they found him crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting to cut the twine around the load.

Luckily, the police stopped him and had the load removed.

The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they made the customer sign a waiver.

While the plywood and 2X4's are fairly obvious, what you can't see is the back seat, which contains 10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each.

Both back tires had exploded, the wheels were bent and the back shocks had been driven through the floorboard.

The car, with FLA plates, was headed for Clanton, AL where the couple planned to build a new house.
