Let's say you live on a corner where cars fly around and have driven into
your yard or knocked down your fence. So to protect yourself, you take 10
foot long pipe and put it 6 feet in the ground with concrete, then you pour
concrete down the middle of it. It would now most likely protect you from
the car, but kill whoever hits it. Let's just say its raining and some
person hydroplanes and hits this barrier you have created and dies ... you
can expect to be sued for everything you own and maybe even face criminal
charges. No one's blaming the bumper guard or the pipe, that's ridiculous,
they're blaming the person who dug the hole or tightened the bolts.

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
