Beating in Progress: Craigslist Find Transport

Four 35" TSL SuperSwampers mounted on wheels for $150 in Norfolk? I'm there!

Well, not to buy the tires, just to transport for a friend with a tireless truck. This just illustrates another advantage of having a beater - never having to turn down a good bargain just because you had nothing to haul it with!

Fitting a full set of Swampers in an AE82 Corolla takes serious planning and work. Removing the rear seat and placing it over the tire in the trunk is a start. Then lashing one tire on to the roof is necessary, which I should should mention substantially decreases headroom over bumps. Scoot both driver and passenger seats all the way forwards, and enjoy the 3 hour ride!
