Has anyone done this? Not on a frame, but by gripping the back and pulling upwards? I'm only asking because I am wondering if my deadlift is strong enough yet to attempt this on my 306!

To lift the actual car off the deck i doubt it (wheels and all) also ud have to be pretty tall as the body of the car woud move not the chassie until the suspension had stretched to its max

We had fun the other evening lifting different cars up on a frame from the ground, the handles were slightly lower than a normal deadlift. very hard. Happy

No, I meant just lift the back wheels off the ground, holding the rear bumper in your locked out arms at waist height so the car rests on its front wheels

Not true.

I've lifted quite a few cars in this manner, including 3 out of the 6 cars I've owned!

Did you ever lift a car when your max deadlift was 210?

Me and my mate managed it a while back on his old Fiesta by taking a wheel arch each, I've also seen it done by someone using rope on the towing loops on the back and doing a bit of an improvised wheelbarrow.

I think that it would be extremely difficult without a frame as there really isn't much to grip onto and you might end up just breaking the bumper on your motor which wouldn't be great.

The first car I ever lifted was my dad's friend's VW Golf when I was a skinny teenager with a maybe a 170/180 dead lift!! Being short really helps. A car bumper digging into your fingers is painful.

Wow, a golf is a pretty heavy car as well

Old type of Golf. Surprisingly light at the back.

The 2nd car I lifted was my 1st car, which was a Metro. That was more difficult than the Golf.

lifted loads when young and pissed. minis, fiestas, fiat stradas. dont know what the heaviest one (I think a sierra) was but the bumpers on older cars were better for gripping. its not that difficult really.

My mate Dave did this with his old Nissan Micra. 306 might be pretty heavy though I imagine.
