That’s approximately 34 sheets of plasterboard. If 50 lbs each that’s 1700 lbs! I may be lite at 50 lbs each. 
That’s nuts. 

 

Those appear to be 4x10x1/2 sheets, so REALLY HEAVY. But hey, anything to save the $60 to rent the truck or have it delivered.

 

People are nickel cheap and dollar foolish.

Here is a good video about the first 25 years of Watkins Glen. Since it was filmed in 1972 even the new footage is vintage now. Lots of good racing shots.

 

 

On the 2001 AACA Founders Tour, we got to drive that track in it's 2001 configuration.   We drove it in our high performance german sports sedan.1976686675_66VW.thumb.jpg.911d181b2a6a868a27ec4eabb0f04577.jpg

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think sheet rock is closer to 60 lbs per sheet.

I agree that’s why I said my 50 lbs may be lite. As Matt said if they are 10x8 sheets they are probably closer to 75 lbs. But you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know you are going to destroy that cars suspension system and other parts doing that. Plus you are possibly going to get hurt and hurt others. Forest Gump saying comes to mind “Stupid is as stupid does” 

Have fun

Another Watkins Glen Vintage race video, this one is the 1950 race on the original street track. Even a Crosley Hotshot shows up briefly around the 5 minute mark.

SheetRock?

We (son & I) recently brought home 40 sheets of 5/8 inch 4ft x 8ft from Home Depot

to redo the newly rewired and R-30 insulated attached garage-

You'd better bet we rented their truck - flat bed with drop sides-

no sense trying to make trips with our rigs.

Next come the new doors and openers
