    I used this old wrecker to take my 30 pickup down to the co-op for a weigh slip to put on title. . What a trip that was. Like stepping way back in time. I no longer own either one but very fond memories of this old wrecker. Didn't go very fast and the brakes really didn't work very good. I sold it to a collector in the NW. Steve

  14. Heck, that's the one that inspired me to find an A-108 and make a car hauler.

    Found at Curboy's Junkyard in MA. It is one of their own tow trucks, long since retired.

    here is a couple pics of my ramp truck. It has a sleeper cab with a chevy bowtie window in the front of the cab. This was a high dollar truck in the day. Would love to know the history of it. The guy I got it from says it was Grumpy Jenkins but I cant prove it. It has a 200 gallon fuel tank, a 100 gal water and air tank. All the compartments on the side have rain gutters and had lights in each!

    Don, badass rig! I have soem grumpy hauler pics.. There hard to get, so the shots arent what we would want, but, heres what i have.

    pretty different. Grumps was a not so normal hauler, he had a more flat bed. What year is yours? his was 69 or earlier since the car on it ius his 69 camaro, first year for prostock. Although if he had a different truck for 70-71 maybe..

    When he drove the vega he started to get a trailer. or atleasta mutch bigger cab hauler.

    Omega, yes, I had seen pics like those already....That is why I am not sure on the sellers info. However, the truck is a 1971 so it is still possible I guess.
