    Both works in progress, but my fiancé and I hope to be driving off in our 1955 Cadillac pulling our 1956 Shasta for our wedding in March

    Wife and I have camped in a two man tent with other car club members and their RVs at Dayton Wa. "All Wheels Weekend" a couple of times now. Takes some planning to fit tent, sleeping bags, air mattress, ice chest, snacks, refreshments, folding chairs and toiletries all in the trunk and backseat of a '47 Ford Coupe. We're both in our mid sixties and I think she likes the tent camping more than me.

    I've played with idea of getting an old Ford C.O.E. and having an old semi truck sleeper added to the back of the cab. That would be cool to pull in next to all the motorhomes at some Walmart.

    Not a hotrod but woke up to a friend's 53 Olds after a show.

  10. Great stuff here. We pulled a variety of campers behind our old '39 Ford coupe, mostly pop-ups but my favorite was this 13' Scamp upright - we dubbed it the "Hotrod Hilton". Put a lot of miles on it. Only drawback: at times, visibility to the rear (as in lane changing) was a little tricky. It helped to have a co-pilot.

    I've since downsized just a bit. A 1970's vintage Sears cabin tent works fine, at least when the weather cooperates! I won't rule out getting another small camper someday though, maybe once I get a trailer hitch on my Chevy II. Even though I love those teardrop campers, I really think I'd like to have something I can stand up and move around a bit in. I'm 6'2", mildly claustrophobic and I don't like to fold myself up!

  11. I'm 6' 4" tall and standing up was important to me, at 68 years old I think I am as tall as I will get but I still have a few inches of head room. HRP

  12. Ya, I think I've read somewhere that as we age at some point we start shrinking... :eek:
    That's a really sharp camper, love the color!
