My son, an avid four-wheel-drive enthusiast, was in my garage putting a suspension lift and big tires on his car, a 1979 Chevy Blazer. He began with much excitement and a lot of noise, and soon had parts all around. Two days later the Blazer was six inches higher. He then noticed his oversight – it was now too tall to back out of my garage.
