tow a brick lately?

was moving some of the fleet around friday, was wondering what everyone else has for utility, wood haulers, snomobile/motocycle, horse trailers, car haulers.

this is the "other trailer" a mid 90's wells cargo car hauler 10,000 lb capacity.

tows like a brick! even with the nose cone!

we use it for mobile storage, and at motorcyle rallies. nice to have a mobile garage with you when dealing with vintage motorcycles!

i have moved many family members and friends with it, stuff and go!

what does everyone else have for "other" trailers?

Besides the 75 and the 58, I've got a vintage 61 Glasspar Seafair boat that is almost finished - going to get the new engine next week. Also have a 5x8 utility trailer.

Cylinder Index

Here in Minnesota we count our toys per the Garage Logic radio show. You count up the total number of cylinders you own. It's called the cylinder index. Right now I am at 18 cylinders with boat, lawn mower, chain saw, automobile and truck. Maybe more with some of my other non gasoline powered saws and air compressor.

No, man... I got SIX spares on it! If one goes, there's five more to get you where you need to go!

Oh, wow... was I supposed to count the cylinders on the non-rolling stock stuff too? Whew?
