    Well, if you can get to Frankenmuth, Mi Friday night :D , you can see it run Mainstreet ahead of the dragsters - locked in a bitter re-match with the ex-Mancini Racing Mopar...... ! I'm even taking out the baffles......:eek:

    OK - I have way too many projects, and I'm never going to get this to the strip where it belongs !!:(

    One of you guys needs to make this into a proper HAMB dragster , therefor I'm letting her go - see the classifieds !:)

    About that...What kind of tow set up do you have? I want to pull my 1958 camper with my '50...especially for Back to the Bricks.

    It’s a beautiful car. But no more towing. This baby is going to do the cruz’n now.

    I built a 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 hitch receiver for the car - tied into the frame and bumper mounts. Originally built to pull a motorcycle trailer - so plenty strong to flat tow this light Crosley. Probably not heavy enough for a camper - but you could design one that was. Or go to a hitch fabrication place and they could fab one up for you.
