That is a riot..! saw the rooftop rig in San Felipe while getting coffee for the last leg out of Baja!!!
The story behind it/them is better. Three young Germans fresh out of college fly into Toronto buy that POS blazer with plates from Nova Scotia. Go to Home Depot buy everything needed including tools, build it in the parking lot and return the tools and head for Baja. They dont have a cooler sighting they are from Germany and dont mind warm beer, OK. Pictured in San Felipe we saw them a few more time lastly at San Borja mission in the middle of nowhere. My wife comments on the 1/2 bald front tires (front suspension is toast) and hoped they had a good spare. They all started laughing only to say we have a spare but no jack, WTF. To follow with after Cabo we plan to stop in Ensenada on our way back up for tires 'we heard they are cheap there'.

I did not see your rig:( as Im sure it would have stuck out.
