Found In Holland: Could This Be The Worst Truck for Sale…Ever?
I'm no stranger to random cars on the side of the road being listed for sale. It's how I bought and sold my very first car. However, this one caught me off guard.

There are a lot of weird things that can be spotted from the road in Michigan. Here are just a few of them:
