    Was given a fairly long ladder and had to bring it around 50 miles from Wrexham to get it home today. No problem!

    EDIT - have changed the way in which the pictures are attached...

    Is it allowed to drive something like that sticking out of the boot? always wondered that as I used to see people in the past driving around with furniture sticking half way out of the car!

    The "stick out dangerously" is a bit ambigous.

    BTW @Zebster is that your MR2? Very nice car! :Hey:

    Is this a rehearsal for the new top gear Chris Evans sits on the end of the ladder and falls off :jumpy:. :jumpy: :jumpy:

    Was it dangerous or not? I was most worried about someone ramming me from behind while I was at lights or queuing at roundabouts, but nobody came close. This would have been dangerous to me, I guess, but nobody else - but it isn't something I'd want to do regularly, I must admit.

    Point is, it's pretty amazing what you can get in the back of these tourers! A couple of years ago I nearly traded it in for an L200 pickup, but actually that would have been less useful for much of the stuff I need to carry.

    Yes @exec, that's my wife's MR2 Roadster. Had it from new and it is a great little car, but I'm too tall and 'sturdy' to fit in it comfortably. I don't want to tempt fate, but that's the most reliable car I've ever known.
