That's been posted on here a few times in the past year or so. I believe it's in PA?, if I remember correctly. Someone on here swore it was real & they had seen ot in person. I still have a hard time believing it though, as I've never seen anything close to that pitch in my career! :eek:

Assuming it's real you'd need a 4x4 to get into the garage. If you had a car you'd get high centered pulling into the garage.

Come to think of it you'd need something like a Jeep Wrangler or a Hummer H1. Short front and rear overhangs so you don't scrape. A van would definetely be out, you'd drag the rear bumper.

can you imagine the fun if that thing was covered in ice? build a ramp where it levels off, run out of the garage, slide down the decline, hit the ramp and whoosh up, up, and away!

2 things.

1. I really hope someone was not actually stupid enough to warrant having to do that. (There is lots of blame in that sentence)

2. I would hate to have to park on the drive way itself.

I don't think you would be gettin that new trailer in that drive....:no:

Who does this kind of contracting any way. How could you feel right about putting something like this in. Who was the boss, how does this stuff happen? WTF, I have made alot of money over the last couple years fixing **** like this, not on concrete but on tank jobs. I want to know what drives people to do this kind of work. I would quit if anyone asked me to do that. No one who has any morels shold pull this kind of crap. I would guess that is whay Im still in business after the ression. PA

I am not quite sure how that one got pass the building official as at the bottom or start of the driveway, most vehicles would bottom out except maybe fore a very short wheelbase high stance 4x4 vehicle such as a jeep, honda element.

You'd need a bubba truck with a 3" body lift and a 6" suspension lift to navigate that incline.

DON'T KNOW what you would do with it once you reached the top though!:w00t: :laughing:
