Flatbed backing up to the garage..I bungee corded the spare for transport....
Saw this last week. The the thought of hijacking crossed my mind...
Any one tell me what the cars are?
When the seller delivered my 36...
...a few I've drag'd home...
First pictures of the 37 Chevy Pickup I used for my Custom Kingcab build and one of my 58 Chevy cars after body work and paint.
Bringing my Stude home after paint.
Bringing it home from Dallas...
Heading to the body shop...
Just getting it home...
On it's way to the new owner in PA.
My 29 Phaeton the day I bought it...
My 60 F100 the day I sold it
Bringing the 59 F100 home from New Brunswick.
The 58 F100 coming home from New York. (Did a little camping on the trip home).
And most recently, a 35 coupe that I had a look at while coming home from Thanksgiving. The highway was shut down due to an accident, and I'd been staring at it for over an hour on the trailer ahead of me.
That's a very costly lesson in towing!
The day I bought my 38 willys home 2 years ago not much has changed
Picked this ol girl up for some body parts in Detroit earlier this year.
Look like two little 1928 or thereabouts Chevy coupes and something big that i can,t afford.

Nor-Cal - just saw coverage on local TV station (KCRA 3 4:05PM 10/18) about a '32 Ford being transported on an open trailer by a pick-up truck that was involved in a crash on HWY 80, Rocklin, CA
- have no other details
How about towing from Winstead, CT back to Detroit with Ralph Nader's Corvair on the trailer? The car was donated to Ralph's Law Museum in Winstead (his hometown) and he asked me to "help him sell his Corvair". I'm a helpful guy so I bought it from him!!
That Vair 3/4 rear view pic is the cats meow...that's mild custom material right there..Mostly paint , scallops , stripping etc..and lake pipes...
It was a bit of a relay. Bought the 50 from California & had it shipped to the Washington while I sorted out exporting it to Canada. The first picture is the first time I saw the car in person coming off of the shippers truck. The second is a borrowed truck from work to go through it & make sure it would pass an inspection. (Inspection was needed to be able to be registered for the first time in BC)
Thank-you Pertronix for a great product! and BCAA for rescuing me.
One of these days we will start on this

Most of the cars I've bought over the years have been some what local and can drive (maybe shouldn't though ). Here are 2 I have on the computer, my friends Merc (early 2000's) and my girls Stude (a few yrs ago) both with my moms truck as I'm too lazy to be bothered putting a hitch on mine. I going to have to do something soon as her truck is going to get sold and my panel needs some more power to tow up hills.
Forgot about the Hillman
And the parts Hillman
I’m guessing late twenties Chrysler’s, or Plymouth’s . Looks like a Chrysler Imperial up front.
The only times it is O.K. to be on a trailer.
Going to the races or bringing a project home.
My Tudor coming home
Bringing home my Model A and a early Ford chassis.
