The statue, coincidentally called Saved by a Whale's Tale, had not been intended to actually save a train.

Actually, come to think of it… what's the bet that car only comes out on Sundays to go to ${RELIGIOUS_PLACE_OF_WORSHIP}? Why? It's a holy car!

Trying to see what's under the hood. Doesn't look like there's an engine in there.

Maybe there's just holes in the floor that your feet poke through. Leg power generation… Wonder if it has yabba-dabba-dual airbags?

Hard to eyeball that pic but I think that if that thing measures a fraction of an inch over 96" from that green flag to the mudflap = illegal. I am sure a bonafide DOT inspector could come up with more.

Thin straps going through the car windows trying to hold 500 lbs of snowmobile in place on a thin sheet metal roof? Yeah, hit a good bump, brake normally, turn normally, and that snowmobile is going to shift hard and possibly come off the car or make the car uncontrollable. Which means the occupants of any other car behind or nearby are in real danger.

I don't know the law here, but stupid unsafe loads get stopped by cops here if cops are around to see it.
