Semi V Car

I was driving to a delivery this morning in Apache Junction. I have been to this site before, a long time ago actually - it's a water pumping station with giant tanks and also additives are put into the water. Anyway, it's a narrow street - but there is a rather large housing complex that this street is a feeder for.
