Here is Mr. White with a new bathroom floor tied to the roof. This trip was short, the Lowes is a 10 minute walk from our house. In the background is our son's '94 Escort, Mr. Black.

I had a sofa strapped to the top of my escort wagon to bring it to a friends house. I then took their old sofa to the dump, also on the roof.

I've used mine to transport an engine plus two people's luggage and junk several hundred miles, as well as full rear loads of firewood.
I did replace the rear springs a couple years ago, oddly one was broken.
I also made up a floor of 3/8" plywood to reinforce the back cargo area, years ago. Sure helps!

Thank you Studog, read about Mr. White in the photo section, he's been through a lot.
I knew Joey would mention firewood. For his eagle project our son rebuilt 180' of split rail fence and the material (including the 12' rails) was brought in by Mr. White. But the biggest load he carried, and the reason I changed from Chevy Sprints (the best car I ever owned, sorry Escorts) to Escorts, was carrying the family and my parents a load I estimate to be more than 650 pounds.
