    Thats going to be pretty cool.. I'm looking for a 48-51 Dodge pick up for my hauler,, I have a 440 Dodge engine and trans out of a motorhome that has 30k miles on it.. That aught to pull my HA/GR around pretty easy.....

    17, That's gonna look cool going down the road!:)

    Dick, you could end up with one of those scenes from the early days of drag racing where the tow vehicle was faster than the race car!:D

    Bob.. I'm not looking for speed, Just some power to pull us over the hills and dales,, The Grapevine is a real bitch with NO horsie power...I got a Dodge diesel that pulls it just fine, But it is not "Old Time"....besides it would be fun......

    I'm excited to get it all done ! I built a lowered trailer for a buddy ,(hauled a vintage nailhead sprint car, behind his 32 Ford truck) Think I'll base mine off what I built for him . I 'm just going to have to jack up the adjustable coil overs on the Model A , but it should be fine ! Glad the Ha/Gr cars dont weigh much :D

    Well like a Fart in the wind ! I am changing directions ! I will now be building a 1960's era slingshot instead of the HA/GR car . So now my trailer is going to have to be a little longer :cool: , Sorry to all the HA/GR guys I just want to go faster . But to any new comers you have to try out a HA/GR car they are a blast !!!!
