Storage Unit King

One of my best buddies made a cross country move last weekend. She had to catch a flight early Saturday morning, so Poetroad and I let the movers into the storage unit to pack up the rest of the under-estimated load.

The best part of the deal was being able to see the Manager’s home there in the middle of this asphalt jungle. It was doublewide trailer - ehhm, manufactured home – made complete with the king-sized Jacuzzi parked out back. The Jacuzzi sat on the frame of a trailer (the kind of trailer that can be pulled by a truck), so even it was on wheels.

But that’s not all.

This portable Jacuzzi contraption was hooked up to – this is no lie – a mint condition sunfire-orange Ford Pinto.

This is one of those moments in my life that I wished I had my camera with me. I’m seriously thinking about going back there with my camera in hand because you really have to see it to believe it. I’m even thinking of going to pick up a storage application just so I can get this pic.

Until then, the portable Jacuzzi will just have to remain an urban legend.

Hey now...that sounds like my kind of set-up. Does the king need a queen?

I think he might be married, but I'll bet he'll add you to his harem. I'll check on that when I go to snap the pic.

He likes dogs, which I know you would appreciate. There were two HUGE labs living in that trailer. Bigger than me. One slathered me with his tongue, and I looked like I was lactating when it was all over. One side of my shirt directly on the boob was soaked.

nice. next question: do you think he has stinky feet?

"I like stinky feet."

You know, forget all that gas-tank moving. back in the 70s, they just should have had Pinto owners tow jacuzzis. What a better idea!

say... you are old enough to know what I am talking about, right? lol

bluesugarpoet said...

Oh yeah - I can't believe anyone would even want to own one of those death machines because of that!

I hate to admit it, but I am old enough to know.

I'm not.

Rear end an old Pinto and pretty much the gas tank blows up. Bad design. People ended up having it moved. One guy I know plastered a message with stick on letters: Caution Stay Back - Will blow up on impact.
