NICK EICHER, HOST: As we head toward winter, some of us have preparations to make.
Like buying a snowmobile.
One young man in northwest Wisconsin found himself a real bargain, but had a problem.
How to get it home?
So he called upon his own American ingenuity: He muscled the 500-pound beast up onto the roof of his Toyota Corolla and headed out on the highway.
A state patrolman saw him, stopped him, but ended up confirming it was strapped down safely enough and he wasn’t technically breaking the law, so he let him go.
The driver explained it’s pretty common up in these parts.
And he’s right about that.
AUDIO: Well, I didn’t have a snowmobile trailer.
This guy did the exact same thing last winter. The audio from WISN television.
AUDIO: You know this seemed like a nice, cheap way of doing it. And the car that I use is kinda on its last legs. So, you know, not more damage to be done.
Words to live by.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
