Strongman Pushes a Car That Was Deliberately Blocking Driveway

If you’re going to purposely block someone’s driveway, make sure they don’t have a strongman on speed dial.

Abi Mustafa lives in Luton, a town about 30 miles north of London, and she had a problem. According to The Daily Mail, she lives on a public road and had been parking her car in front of her neighbor’s house. Her neighbors don’t have a driveway so she thought it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but it turned into a month-long feud that culminated in her neighbors parking their car over Mustafa’s driveway, purposely blocking the entrance.

That’s when she called her nephew, Hakan Acar, better known in local strongman circles as The Tulk. That’s short for “The Turkish Hulk.”

Acar turned up and was unable to resolve the dispute. Then he had an idea. He later said, “I’ve pulled eight and a half tonne trucks before so a one-tonne Corsa wasn’t going to be a problem.”

You can guess what happened next.

Note that he quickly realized that Crocs aren’t great footwear for pushing cars. (Climbing shoes are a more common choice.)

Acar was quoted as saying,

I was worried that the hand brake might have been on – and I was trying to work out whether it was front or rear wheel drive. Then it just started moving.”

I’m quite a calm person – I’m not an angry person at all but hearing the way he spoke to my auntie just upset me a bit.

To be honest I didn’t go over with the intention of actually pushing the car in the first place. I just wanted to see how heavy it was but then I realised I could move it.

Unfortunately for Acar, local police have confirmed that he’s being investigated for criminal damage to their vehicle. He called this “a shame,” saying that,

I know the car is not damaged. I moved it out of the way but it is fine, so this just feels childish.

At least he got in a good workout.

Nick English :Nick is a content producer and journalist with over seven years’ experience reporting on four continents. His first articles about health were on a cholera outbreak in rural Kenya while he was reporting for a French humanitarian organization. His next writing job was covering the nightlife scene in Shanghai. He’s written on a lot of different kinds of things, but his passion for health ultimately led him to cover it full time. Shanghai was where he managed to publish his first health related article (it was on managing diarrhea), he then went on to produce a radio documentary about bodybuilding in Australia before he finished his Master’s degrees in Journalism and International Relations and headed to New York City. Here, he’s been writing on health full time for more than five years for outlets like Men's Health, VICE, and Popular Science. Nick’s interest in health kind of comes from an existential angle: how are we meant to live? How do we reach our potential? Does the body influence the mind? (Believe it or not, his politics Master’s focused on religion.) Questions like these took him through a lot of different areas of health and fitness like gymnastics, vegetarianism, kettlebell training, fasting, CrossFit, Paleo, and so on, until he realized (or decided) that strength training fit best with the ideas of continuous, measurable self improvement. At BarBend his writing focuses a little more on nutrition and long-form content with a heaping dose of strength training. His underlying belief is in the middle path: you don’t have to count every calorie and complete every workout in order to benefit from a healthy lifestyle and a stronger body. Plus, big traps are cool.
