      Due to the lack of a ton of squat from that rear suspension, my guess says its a prop. Still a definite WTF moment tho, lmao.

      Eactly, that Tacoma would be on the bump stops if real.

      1 question:

      since the extra HP is on the back does that mean its RWD ?

      How does trapping a child in the rear seat of a New Beetle add another horsepower?
      My legend dates back to the 12th Century you see. My legend is quite old. The 12th Century was a long time ago. It was summer and so cold from the snow because it was actually winter or maybe it was Monday. It could have been a Thursday or possibly a Saturday or was it Tuesday though it could have been Wednesday or a Monday.

      Note that that pic is sans straps. That tells me the horse fell out once. It's also on a blue blanket in that pic and a white one in the first. Someone is having a good time with this.
