Our 1961 Bambi is towed bythe 1965 Mustangs from South Carolina to Key West each year. We put the top down at Miami and drive topless thru the Keys.

Every Monday morning I rise with the selflessness and purpose of Ghandi to go about my weekly toil. It's raining this morning and I had a flat tyre too! I arrive at my office with a strange smile (BUT A SMILE JUST THE SAME!) on my face! Switch on my computer and consider my near future with a sense of optomism that fortune will be kind and the good people of the forums will embolden my every move!

Bambi?!
Mustang?!
Florida?!
Key West?!
Top Down?!

The proper thought at the proper time will gladden the heart!

You lucky, Lucky B*****d!!!!!!

Nice one! ...enjoy!!

Marc

When we went to pick up our Sovereign, they had tried to move it with a largish garden tractor. They were spectacularly unsuccessful...

I just relocated my 35' SOB with a dozer - does that count as wierd?

The good
Tows great - no sway
Easily adjustable trailer ride height via 3 pt hitch
NO TV squatting
Great manuverability
Super low CG
Easily removes obstructions in the road
"I can't even tell it's back there"

The Bad
MPG is Gallons per mile
Ride is kinds rough
Ya'll think a WD hitch creaks and groans??
No photos, my assistants were too busy laughing

Well, I've towed a couple of smaller rigs around the park here with our 1948 Ford 8N. Ours looks pretty much like this one:

I only wish I had a picture of this....

About 20 years ago, Grandad pulled an old oak stump out of his backyard, Which the old 400 in his 76 Ford Gran Torino was able to do handily.
That problem solved, now he needed to get it the 2 miles down the road, accross Highway 99 to his shop so it could be cut up.
Not a problem either since it was still chained to the back of the Torino, so off he went.

Unfortunatly dragging a 5 foot stump across 99W did catch the attention of a passing trooper.
It only took him 15 minutes of research to find something to write a ticket for. I believe it was for not having proper fenders on "the trailer".

In reference to earlier posts on this thread....
The reason why the British drink warm beer? They all have Lucas refrigerators

Overkill

When I purchased my Bambi II in 1980, I towed it home with a 1979 GMC dually. Yes, I got lots of strange looks. One man even suggested that I should haul it in the truck bed.

Canadian towers...

Canadians tend to buy smaller vehicles and fuel efficiency ranks higher when deciding which vehicles to buy, whether its for towing or not. This is evident in the fact that for years now the Honda Civic has been the best selling car in Canada, as opposed to the Toyota Camry in the US. For me the challenge is to find a balance between towing ability when its needed and practicality when its not. There are also much better beers other than Molsons that you might want to check out. I would recommend Steam Whistle or Upper Canada.
Safe towing to all.

What trailer

What trailer, if it were not for the backup camera I wouldn't know it was back there.
