and your employee just lets that happen to his car why? with the busted out lights, hes likely to get pulled over

I'm thinking false advertising.  I bet Big O doesn't sell the same lift kit that is on your truck, and without lockers it is an unlikely possibility of car crushing.

I parked on my best friends car once. It was a very bad decision. It was before school in the parking lot and caught the attention of an old lady who thought there was a terrible accident and she proceded to call 911. Me and my buddies were standing around laughing and taking pictures when the fire dept. and an ambulance rolled up with 6 police units expecting to find a bad accident. Much to their surprise there was only a bunch of 18 year olds standing around with horrified looks on our faces as all these vehicles just pulled up code 3 and parked in front of my truck. Shortly after, the principal and vice principle showed up in a rather furious state. I ended up getting suspended from school for a week, my parking pass that cost me a lot of money was confiscated and I got and a citation for recklass driving with a matching court date. My friend that owned the car was also suspended, he lost his parking pass and the principal had his car towed and impounded for insufficiant tire tread! Then of all things the principal asked me if I can give the other kid a ride home. Maybe he could have driven himself home if he wouldn't have had his car towed. The other kid ripped his CD player out on the spot, threw his keys at the tow truck driver and told him he could keep it. The funniest thing was the teachers couldn't start class for 20 minutes because the entire high school was standing outside waiting to see me get arrested. It was fun playing video games all week with my best friend without having to go to school.

 :gap:
actually..i need to correct you...being the manager of an independantly owned big o means that i sell what i want. that means more specifically that if i want to sell 63 inch chevy springs and wagoneer springs i can, and i cvan install them on whatever, i am licenced and certified in the state of oregon to weld structurally and in automotive repair shops...so i sell a sas package as well...its like running a off road fab shop...with a corporate logo!!! ah how sweet it is. and i sell lockers as well. anyway, that aside...the stunt was used and will be used to promote lift kits of any kind...and its working rather well i might add :thumbs:

It doesn't help me sell anything, but crushing cars is alot of fun.
This is the car that origonally got crunched by my inebriated friend.
