What? Why?! Ford F-150 Hauls Car in Truck Bed

1980s F-150 towing car

We’re not sure why you’d want to do this, but it’s certainly impressive that a ford F-150 can do it! 

We came across this picture on Reddit of a Ford F-150 hauling a car. Oh, let us clarify, we were shocked when we came across this picture of a Ford F-150 hauling a car in the truck bed tied down with a only few straps. Let us first state the obvious: Why? And a follow up would be: Huh. That truck is actually hauling the car on its side with what appears to be no problems. We’re half cringing and half in awe.

Redditors had a few great zingers about the 1980s F-150 unusual payload capacity. A few comments that stuck out were:

“Carpooling to use the HOV lane?”

“I got a new car today, ‘Imma bring my truck to take it back.”

“Papa said always carry a spare.”

“Those trucks are legendary…Ford F-150 with an in-line 6 engine. It’s the best engine Ford has ever made and those trucks are still on the road everywhere.”

“Someone left it out on the curb, so he’s bringing it to the recyclers to get money.”

A few people noticed that, logic aside, it did work. One Redditor commented “The front is the heaviest part with the engine, so it’s balanced.” But our favorite comments were, “This picture is proof that it wasn’t ancient aliens that built all that cool sh*t that nobody can figure out how it was done. It was ancient rednecks.” And, “Car got drunk had to give it a ride home.”

Whatever the circumstances behind this haul, it’s crazy what a Ford truck can do. Even when it really shouldn’t!
