Strange in 78250: Backwards Driving...

Sweet! My wife and I were out doing some late morning garage-sailing when right before our eyes we witnessed a guy in a truck pulling another guy in his little car. Okay, nothing to see here - moving along, moving along...

Oh, did I mention that the car being pulled was being pulled backwards?

The tandem zipped by us on Tezel quicker than my wife could yell, "You never have the camera when we see something good..." In the mean time I was pulling onto Tezel behind the scene of interest with my camera coming directly from my pocket and into shooting position!

Imagine how hard it is when people back out of parking spots at HEB; this guy was doing it like a pro at 35 miles an hour, around turns and all the while with nothing but the bed of the truck in front of him as a view. I'm impressed.

I have no idea why they chose to pull the car backwards as opposed to frontwards, but it made for a strange* but entertaining sight!

*With apologies to Strange in San Antonio

No! NO! NO!
You got it wrong. I was impressed and yelled cause it was a gal pulling the guy in the truck. Man his wife or girlfriend sure can drive.

No apologies necessary. As a matter of fact, I'm linking to this post right now!

P.S.: Great shootin'! Sometimes, you're just in the right place at the right time. With a camera.
