    Bringing home a sunburned, original paint Torpedo. Sold it at Pomona. Could've bought that '37 V8 flatbed for $1200. Unrestored original in very nice driving condition.

    I like looking at everybody's projects in these pics on this thread. Diamonds in the rough or showpiece pride and joy. They're all great shots.

    My son towed his father’s project coupe 350kms each way ( 700kms total ), last year so he could have his bride to be, - driven 400 metres - into their wedding venue and then have a couple of photos taken in front of it……
    The smokey flathead fordor was the bridesmaids car and was actually driven the whole distance……

    and for those wondering what I look like, that’s me tying it back on the trailer……:D

    My avatar from a long time ago, when the guy I bought it from initially bought it.
    Pretty much same condition as I bought it, many years later.

    I have never seen a trailer that the whole side opens up! Too Kool. Did you spec this trailer or was it off the lot? Again , nice rig!

    Was a 3rd axle not an option?

    It comes with that escape door and spread axles so you can walk out the side after driving in. It is called an Alcom Stealth Pinnacle. It was made in Montana, I bought it from a friend in Portland/Gresham area who is a dealer for them. And thanks!

    No I bought it used. It handles fine I have over 30K trouble free miles on it. It's heavier than when I bought it as I added x-members and the 63" semi sleeper. Here's a couple of other loads P1020787 (500x375).jpg DSCN3353.JPG
