Strong winds out in South Korea managed to push a container on top of a Hyundai Elantra, making it appear to be a low rider cruising with a hydraulic suspension.

Ho dang that car has a crazy drop! What springs do ya got? But seriously, I'm impressed by how well the car has maintained its structural integrity given the weight of the container. Speaks well to the car's design.

Gotta love how it's a Hyundai trailer/container that blew over on a Hyundai car... but I'm sure someone somewhere will build an Elantra that's slammed to the pavement like that without the 35,000 lbs. plus on it.

I was thinking more like this,


"This may be true but it is a chrysler sebring which is synonomous with being a p.o.s. car. Personally I gotta say it's getting
really tiring having to clean off the sopping wet panties from my Hyundai Elantra every morning. Bitches love Hyundais."

It still looks better than my Elantra with all its chips. Can't believe it didn't get crushed.

That's hellaflush.

It looks like the container has more damage than the car!

Guessing the trailer was empty as the side is flexing quite a bit... could also be why the wind blew it over.
