Skips are quite heavy though. Best not fit a Pinto or you may excede the 44ton weight limit for UK roads.

There is a vid on youtube of jeremy clarkson racing a skip (not that one), a bed, a sofa and a garden shed but i cant find the clip at the moment.

That must have the aerodynamic qualities of, er, a skip.

If you parked on a road at night do you legally need to leave the hazards on?

Start with the countries first Aluminium honeycomb or composite skip

Looks to my like you'd get a lot of front end lift at speed from that shape (waits for full aerodynamic opinions from the professionals on the board

How fast would you need to go to get enough lift to make a skip feel light though?
