Oh...that guy... funny anyone would pick on him over tow ratings.
You'd think he'd have taken a lot more heat for going all over Canada on a "Save the Earth!" mission while towing a big ol' trailer. THAT has to have ruined his "I'm an environmentalist" street-cred.

By the way- and this is for all concerned:

Since I started this "joke" thread, I hereby declare that only those that attempt to sabotage it into a serious discussion of any kind are to be considered in any way "Trolls". If anyone wants to discuss the relative merits of European/Canadian/United Statesian standards, please start another thread in one of "Take this seriously" sections of the forum.

In the immortal words of Mammy Yokum:

Ah has spoken!

How does one differentiate between the "joke" thread and the "serious" thread?

"Jokes, Stories, and Tall Tales" in the section head is an important clue!
A thread in any forum section that does not fall under that heading can be taken seriously.....at least at first.

Must resist the urge to troll, must resist.....

NORTH AMERICAN TOW RATINGS ARE JUST A WAY FOR MANUFACTURES TO PUSH US INTO BUYING A BIG TRUCK!!!!!!

SOLDER IS BETTER THEN CRIMPS!!!!

GUNS!

Oh. I'm gonna get deleted again. I can just feel it!

Does that affect my posting count?

I'm sorry, David, but I can't accept that image of you...

Ever since you posted that pic of your adorable nine year old self I can't think of you as anything but so cute I could just squeeze the dickens out of you!

Hence the post here instead of starting a new thread asking for the umpteen time "can my car tow this". This thread seemed to be about outrageous tow set ups. Even seemed to go full circle from the original post (VW). Even I have my doubts about that particular setup.

And starting a new thread would have most likely just started another long argument "you need a 1 ton to pull that!" and "I can pull a 5th wheel with my compact p/u".

So I thought we could have light hearted fun because this wasn't meant to be taken seriously. That, and I miss placed the video of my car pulling a 25' class A that had broke down (only into the shop from the parking lot where the tow truck dropped it).

Back to hardy har har about silly towing pranks and stunts

Yup, importing from the EU means we get hit hard by the exchange rate. So they are moving production from the oldest factory to one of the newest. They are also building an engine factory in Mexico to keep up with demand. The cursed 2.5L 5cyl is finally getting the axe in favor of a 1.8T 4cyl. So now we will get a car for a couple grand less that has same power and much improved MPG.

Jason at what point are you going to realize this is in the JOKE section? but then again this really is become a pretty good joke! Appears some dont realize that trolling in the Joke section is just wasting bait.

FWIW: Both when I receive notification of a new post, as well as when I call up the entire thread, there is nothing that tells me in what part of the forum the post originated.

Unfortunately there was nothing funny about the post, re: VW/Airstream Bambi combination.

I don't use "New Posts". I view the threads on the right side of the main pane and click on them there. That takes me immediately to the first unread post. So, I don't have a clue what section a thread is posted to. I find using New Posts a pain in the butt.

I was eleven. I have changed since then. My kids are that cute though, and don't they know it. But they are all avowed trolls too.

That just defeats the ease with which I view new posts now. I don't have to click more than once to get to first unread post so I'm not going to be scrolling up to find out what section it was posted in.

In any event, my question was supposed to be a joke itself.<_<

Heavy sigh...Thread Death Spiral now fully underway...

How do I request that a thread I started be closed due to the original joke having been forgotten, not to mention now falling completely flat and/or on deaf ears???
