Electra Bourbon

Got the 59 Buick Electra (that's mated to a 75 Suburban Trailer Special Suburban) out to tow our 58 Sovereign of the Road to the local Memorial Day Car show this weekend. It did well towing (454 power baby) and there was lots of interest.

Enjoy!

Catch & Released this Combo

Used this combo, 56 Overlander/51 Ford PU, original V-8 Flathead for over two years in the North Ga. Mountains several years ago. Wish I had it back.

There's no love like old truck love... with all due respect to those "car folks" out there.

My tow vehicles are a 56 Chevy 4 door wagon and a 64 Ford F-100. They always get a thumbs up towing one of my old beasts down the road.

It's OK with me if you post pics with "other vintage units". This thread is about vintage tow vehicles.

Congratulations on your new to you Airstream.
