When an old car or truck offers its dying breath in your driveway and you just don't have the financial or mechanical wherewithal to resuscitate it yet again, you traditionally have to go to the trouble of calling a flatbed or a tow truck to come haul it away. That usually helps to put a few bucks in your wallet and helps recycle some of the vehicle's parts, but the transaction doesn't seem as final or perversely satisfying as the dispatch service that this New Way Cobra Magnum garbage truck offers.

Okay, okay, so this refuse hauler isn't actually designed for this sort of thing, but it's oddly comforting to know that a sanitation truck can compact a hapless Pontiac Grand Am into oblivion. Next time, we won't feel so guilty about slipping that rusty charcoal grille onto the curb next to the cans on garbage day. Watch the carnage by scrolling below.

        Well, at least that Darrell Issa. Garbage in, garbage out, I always say.

      They tried to crush a 1965 Chevy Impala; but it ended up eating the truck.

      I've repaired rear loads like that where the dummies driving them thought they could do things like this. Hope the guy doing this is the owner.

      with no engine or transmission... of course it would be that easy to crush. What else did they edit to shorten the video? and I also agree with Doug.
