There are more pictures and some video's at Paul and Jeremy's Super Stalker

While I do put it on the track at times, it is primarily a street car and I have put 30K miles on it with most of those miles in the mountains north of Atlanta.

These pictures are from when it was first built. I wish it was still this pretty, but everytime I have to choose between washing it and driving it, the washing gets delayed.

Here is a more recent picture:

I like your style Paul. I have several collector cars and several like Model T Fords weigh in the 1500 lb. range. I also totally agree with the single axle trailer. If you don't need it for weight, the second axle just gets in the way.

Also my smart only weighs 1578 lb. I tow it on the ground so no trailer needed. I try to keep things simple.

Again nice ride Paul.

Cheers, Dan

I built it from plans from the designer of the SuperStalker. One 3500lb axle with electric brakes. The tilt mechanism is great as there are no ramps to worry about. Just unlatch the top section, tilt it up (gas struts hold it up) and drive up slowly. When you get to the right spot, the weight will bring the top section down. Latch it down, tie the car down, and you are set to go.

Unloading is just as easy in the reverse steps.

Once unloaded it is easy to maneuver by hand.

I have also added a truck tool box to the A-frame on the front and a spare tire carrier.

Paul

OK... Here's a little story, and a subject that is likely to cause quite a stir - so please - don't start up the flame throwers. This is not for everyone, and the political debate is fierce, as well as other aspects...

Nonetheless, here's my 2...

I had a friend - "Joe" - who on a dark and storm full night was being driven home from a bar as a responsible drinker ought to. Unfortunately, once he got home, he didn't stay there, but instead took his Mother's compact car and ventured to go back to the bar.

When he woke up in the hospital, the car was still lodged under the FedEx semi-trailer, and his neck was broken in 2 places.

He wore a "halo" for several months, and the Doctor prescribed Oxy-oneoftheonesyoumentioned - not sure if it was -contin or -codone (I think Oxycontin) to deal with the pain.

"Joe" lives in an area of the country where cannabis is readily available in the underground economy, as well as having been legalized for medicinal use - yes, I am speaking of Marijuana - and Joe was well connected, although he did not have the required "Green Card" which would make it legal for him to carry on his person a certain quantity, as well as storing more at home.

Nonetheless, Joe, knowing what is in the Oxy-pills, and how toxic those chemicals are for the body, elected NOT to even have the prescription filled, but instead call one of is compadres and take up medicinal use of Marijuana.

3 months later, Joe was to go to the Doctor's office to have the Halo removed - and he took that opportunity to hand the Oxy-prescription back to the doctor, who was absolutely in shock that Joe had not used the pills, and was VERY interested in how Joe might have managed the pain.

When Joe explained his personal natural alternative choice, the doctor became very interested in learning more about the benefits of Medical Marijuana.

So - why am I bringing up such a sensitive subject? Well... I read about your chronic pain, and I know how a friend dealt with similar pain - actually I have several other friends who have similar CHRONIC issues that are treated with MJ - and successfully so - so I thought I would simply put out some awareness about this subject, and provide some information that has the potential to be of some help to MEANlowGREEN - after all - your handle DOES have "Green" in it...

So I don't mean to offend anyone - everyone must make their own personal choice when it comes to their health and choice of medicine - but being informed can never be a bad thing.

Cheers!

I'm certainly not offended; what a person decides to do with their mental/ bodily health is their business. Years ago, I helped a friend get through some of the pain of chemo by breaking the law to get him pot. He later died, but I've never regretted helping him get through his final days.
