I thought this was just a fluke, but I saw another example of this on my way into work this morning. People placing a grossly oversized towing accesory on their light-pickups. The one SR20'd here was taken last week. This morning, I saw a, I'd say late 80's Toyota with what looked like a 7" Ball on a reciever. Found a similar pic on the Google below, excuse the absurditiy of the vehicle its attached to temporarily.
