View Full Version : silly idea

I have seen numerous posts over the years about garage clearance - so here is a quick story my grandfather told me.

Years ago where the train came through our town, there was an underpass. It was low and trucks would often get hit it if they were too high or carrying things too large. Had a large semi that barreled through and got stuck. City engineers came out and discussed how to cut the top out of the semi to get it out.

Young boy walked up and surveyed it - said "Or, you could just let the air out of the tires, push it out, then reinflate the tires".

All the smart people felt real dumb.

I think the boy was my grandfather, but he was always too humble to say for sure.

So, if you need 3 inches - you could consider that...

I could always use an extra 3 inches but no matter how much air I let out of my tires I am still left disappointed!! 8p
