Pictures from the road

Because when you hit a bump on the freeway at 75 mph, nothing holds your overloaded trunk closed better than a few strips of tape.

"That looks safe, Ed. Now use some to re-attach the differential."

"First people complained because I didn't give the kids an air hole, and now this. You can't win."

Yours? I would have thought a resourceful MD would have used something, like a . . . kid to hold the minivan closed.

(Only kidding)

Was there a dog in a crate on the roof, if not this is not news.

Which erroneously presumes you wish to keep the contents within the trunk.If somehow Aunt Edna should get lost on the way (her Alzheimer's has been acting up lately) then- well, you get the point.

obviously the work of a novice. A true professional would have used duct tape.

Looks like black 200 MPH racers tape to me... what's the issue?

I have seen the entire rear bumper taped onto the back of the car. Not unusual, I'm afraid to say.

"The ad on Craigslist said the car came with a tape deck, but this isn't quite what I expected."

Duct tape is like the Force.

It has a dark side, a light side and it holds the universe together.

I can't wait for you to get back. I realized I am really addicted to your blog.

That looks like Gorilla tape. That stuff will hold the trunk for a highway trip. I had a headlight taped into my car for many months and Gorilla tape held it in nicely at highway speeds.

It will, however, leave a nasty residue on the paint.
