I drove a Smart Car once, I thought I was at Disney World and someone had taken my car off of that track with the steel rail in the middle. It was really like driving a full bodied golf cart.

Just reminded me- at an auto show about 10 years ago, there was a booth selling 5th wheel hitches for CARS- that mounted THROUGH the trunk lid.

I suspect that is what is use on the car in Doug Arthur's pic

I saw that commercial during the super bowl. After Dec 21st of 2012 only Chevy will survive.

I bought a Dodge and Ellie is kicking me know.

The fellow in my pictures actually had removed the trunk lid.

I wouldn't give 'em a Gibb's slap, but more like a Three Stooges slap... check to check (many times) and a bonk on the head!

Talking A better place for this thread

Isn't there a website called, "There, I fixed it?"
