How the Lane Motor Museum Stacked Five Vehicles on Top of Each Other

Most automotive museums will have special collections–such as a showcase of cars from a certain marque, or an exhibition about a particular class of racing.

Not the Lane Motor Museum. Instead, their crew answered the age-old question: "How many vehicles be stacked on top of each other?"

Thanks to the exhibition—aptly named Stacked!—we can definitively say that yes, you can create a stack featuring five separate vehicles. Do we have some kind of a record? 

 

See how they managed to pull it off:

Yes, the Lane is awesome. 

I wonder if this stack of cars could then fit on the  LARC

Put a go kart, Pedal Car, and then an Matchbox on top of the white car for 8!

Pretty sure the big blue truck would be right at home on a flatbed semi trailer, too!

One of the best museums ever, and run by a great guy who knows how to have fun.

So cool! At first I thought that the Citroen didn't look too happy with that much weight on it, but I should have known that it just had the suspension pumped down.

So, did they load the three wheeler onto the keitruck with a forklift, or just had a couple staff members pick it up by hand?

And then put one of their suitcase motorcycles on top the three wheeler to make a seven-vehicle stack!

Am i the only one that wants that green truck (#3 on car sand which).

Also they should have backed the Citroen on.   It looks like it would of fit, and then they could put Christmas Lights on it cuz it would be tree-shaped.

They upped the number of cars stacked from 5 to 8 here in Berwyn, IL.

When i read the title i thought "that's easy, just use Tesla Model S's" and i'm glad it's cooler than that.
