Yes, you can put a hitch on a unibody car, you just need to find a good hitch fabricator. The 1970's Chrysler products are unibody and many were used as tow vehicles, also the 1960's Lincoln Continentals are unibody and would make a great tow vehicle.

Here is a project for you car restorer/rebuilders. It would make a fantastic tow vehicle for a vintage trailer: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dodge...60701114QQrdZ1

Love the Cuda and Camaro. My wife's brother has the '70 AAR he bought in '72 with just a few thousand miles on it and it still has very few miles - I think fewer than 20,000 but haven't seen it since he parked it in '75 along with a '71 Challenger convert he bought very inexpensively (I think I hate him ). Another friend has the hemi-cuda he bought new tucked away and has not driven it since 1980 when someone swiped the spoiler off the back. He's soon to retire and intends to start playing with it then. It's has 32,000 miles on it. My wife also has all the documentation to show the 'cuda Don Johnson (Nash Bridges) sold at auction a couple of years back was her (late) other brother's car that was originally out of Saskatoon and her brother had it for several years while in Calgary. When he passed in '94 it was sold to another Calgary person who then sold it into CA a few months later. One reason we went for another 70 Chevelle was so it could pull our trailer without frame our power issues. But I'd love to have either of your cars - they'd look mighty fine in my shop.

Here are photos of my daughter and I on my 1980 Honda CX500 which I bought new and still enjoy an occasional ride, and my 1977 Porsche 911S which is my summer fun car.

Very Cool,
If you have one of those, who needs another toy.
I still think those are the coolest ones ever made.

Here's the Packard...

Below is photo of Mom and 1940 Packard taken at Palo Alto Concours in 1999, celebrating 100th anniversary of Packards.. She won trophy from judges who were impressed by actual (used) radiator water bag over bumper, and original typed bill of sale from 1940.. Both still look about the same today..

ROb, i'm digging the buick! it reminds me of Christine. speaking of Christine, my budy's neighbor is restoring one of the original Christines used in the movie. very cool seeing it come together. a little slower than it did in the movie, though. ha!

JP, don't feel bad. I spotted a mildly rusty 1970 Boss Mustang in a field in 1975. The asking price was $500 and I bought it for $350. I really just bought the car for its parts for another project. I did reconsider the plan (to save the Boss) but pony cars were out back then. A few months later I removed the good parts, cut up the body, and hauled it to a scrap yard.

Last year I sold the rim blow steering wheel from that car for $350.

An oldie but a goodie

This was my father's 1940 Ford dragster from years ago. Belongs to his best friend now. Set a world record in it's particular "gas" class on its final run down the track at San Antonio Drag Raceway in the fifties. It's got an old Chevy street motor in it now, but the racing gearbox is still there. The motor is in a crate at his house. He tells me when he reaches his second childhood, he might drop it back in there.
