Bronto Burgers and Ribs

The heavily-laden side-table attached to this car brings to mind the closing credits of The Flintstones when the waitress at the drive-in brings out a massive rack of ribs and plops it down on a tray on Fred’s side of the car, and even though the car is packed with the combined weight of all the Flintstones and Rubbles and their two pets, the massive load of food causes the car to wobble and then tip over. (Thank you, Hanna Barbera, for formulating my view of the world and physics.)

[When I was a little kid, I thought that rack of ribs was a pool float. - Dave]

That "T" has aftermarket coil springs added to the front axle. I wonder if that made it ride any smoother.
