    I wish I had a means of taking pictures back in the day when I was meat cutting, I've pulled elk out of the back seat of cars, mini vans, roofs of cars, trunks, you name it!! :D

    Looks like 4 to me. No B&C animals, just run of the mill low chlorestrol meat.....

    Those old cars had hauling capacity.... Today, that load would have broken the ride in two.

    I like the trunk lid afterthought...lol

    Leave it to Roy to come up with a goodie....:)

    Shoulda put one on the roof rack. It would have distributed the load better.:)

    My shop teacher collected Packards. Automatic hydrological rear suspension. We used to pile a bunch of kids on the back and then jump off and it'd be jacked up like a funny car. That's a heck of a picture.
