Bob's dream was to start his own lawn service, but money was tight at first and he couldn't afford a pick-up truck or trailer...

So much wrong with this photo. How the hell did this guy get that lawnmower in the trunk!

Serious weight on the back-end and where's the little red tag on the back of the lawnmower to warn people of the oversized load.

Wow...

Just as a follow up- this car is obviously a first gen model year S; mainly due to the Geartooth Rims, which were only available , irrc for the 91-93 model year. Unless the owner of this sedan swapped the wheels out....

He needs an SW. It would be even more entertaining, since he'd be even more convinced he could get the whole thing in there.
