    Hugely random idea, but perhaps a bit of fun.

    The Tripod Thread: who can get the most Bizzare pics of their car on 3 wheels?

    I started off a few weeks back when I noticed mine went onto 3 wheels when turning into my drive:

    [​IMG]

    Anyone else got any interesting pics?

    The rules: No high lift jacks allowed!

    woooohoooooo, someone's joined in!

    Despite how it looks, it's actually not dangerous at all, I don't think you could tip it if you tried!

    Got some proper funny looks though!

    yea, that doesnt count!

    1- it's not you

    2- it's no longer a tripod, it's a bloody bicycle!

    1000 internet points awarded to anyone who can get a more bizzare tripod shot than mine!

    I've got an idea for the ultimate one, but I don't think I'm brave enough.

    Be interesting to see if you can open all doors, boot and bonnet.
    If I had 1 wheel off the ground on the sierra I could not open any thing, if it was open I could not close it again.

    I'll see what I can do :p I don't think this idea ever really took off though!

    Shame, it was fun.

    I went back there the other week to try it in the dailly to get a pic for pierre, and they've put bollards across it now so we can't play there again :(
