Re: PICS : How flatbed tow trucks would run out of business without German cars!

Never thought I'd see the day. A Landcruiser on a flatbed!

Barely recovered from that and a minute later, I saw another Toyota being towed! When have you spotted 2 Toyotas being towed back to back? Rubbing my eyes in disbelief, just looking at these pictures

Karma for starting the thread ? Signs from above
Sorry, it was there for the taking.

The Land Cruiser seems to not have its registration plate so going for registration/sale or a document based reason ?

But the Corolla

Sorry for being off topic, A pillar tweeter grill of Punch is visible, giving away the car you are driving. The engine performance being the hot topic on Punch's thread, can you hint its performance in term of Cheetah/Horse or some other indicator if its not against embargo rule.

Here's a Lexus on a flatbed. Sometimes, even Japanese cars need a stretcher.

Re: PICS : How flatbed tow trucks would run out of business without German cars!

So a lot of time, flatbeds also get used for transfer.

I re-bought my classic from Kerala and had her shipped to Mumbai on a closed flatbed:

Last week I picked up a used Thar for duty at my offroad school and since she hadn't been started in 2 years, I got her flatbedded straight to the mechanic's place. Didn't use a regular tow because the rear drum brakes were sticky due to the parking brake being engaged for the two years.

Re: PICS : How flatbed tow trucks would run out of business without German cars!

Didn't think that one of my cars also would end up on this thread.

PICS : How flatbed tow trucks would run out of business without German cars!-20221207_085614.jpg

This is my Octavia, on a flat bed, off to the dealership in Kottayam.

Now, before anyone starts bashing VWAG left, right, and center, I could have driven the car to the dealership myself but decided not drive the car with a failed ABS sensor.

Looks like another way to get flatbed trucks out of business.
