I vote for manyolcars . That's towing ...I tend to avoid mountains ...
The day we met.
Any flat towing pictures to share with us then?
Pretty sure Orange Show Stadium has been in San Berdoo all these years.
Here's my new (to me) '36 Cabriolet getting loaded up at Hamtown Al's in Virginia. It rode at that angle all the way to NY. Unfortunately it caused all the extra parts I bought from Al to slide to the rear of the car...blocking the rumble lid so I couldn't open it. I had to belly slide myself in and out of the trunk, from inside of the car, to remove the parts.
Here is a couple of items I've hauled.
Flat towing a project is sketchy at best, flat towing is for finished projects
Here's a couple.
Posted before but here's my '50 coming home from the paint shop

Here's a couple from last year. The first is leaving for The Meltdown Drags, and the second is the night racing at The Meltdown.
Carry tow it got there.
3 window in lobeck's truck back in the day... r.i.p. barry by lucky ink posted Feb 27, 2011 at 4:53 AM
I shipped a 60 vette to Canada in the dead of winter in a rig much like that. Buyer didn’t want my modern tires so it had 50 year old rock hard bias on original wheels and a foot of snow on the ground, driver had a large beer gut and really could fit in the car, he asked me to pull it up onto the upper level. Holy shee-it talk about a white knuckle grip!
White knuckle sucks...good story though
Maybe not the best way, but 8 years ago I used our Honda Odyssey to get this thing home. It was just over 300 miles.
My son (14 yrs old at the time) remembers that trip fondly.
Heck yeah !!!!!
The '54 on the way home. Looks like U-Haul is the trailer of choice for many. $60 a day is hard to beat.
little cold that day.
Probably so. I have a nice double axle that I used more for building material than projects but it takes up a lot of space in the driveway. Too many did and never enough room.
My new to me Ranch Wagon project on a borrowed trailer (not U Haul) after I got it home and now in front of the shop before pulling the engine and trans.
My 1940 Ford Coupe project from a few years back.
A fellow car club member found this treasure in KY a week or so ago. 60,000 miles! Dual side mounts.
That is his well travelled trailer.
Hey Mike, truck wasn't overweight was it? LOL! Ned
Not on a trailer, but got it home anyway.

The first photo is my roadster on the way to a show. I didn't make it, blew a tire and that blow-out tore a chunk of the tire in front of it... Only had 1 spare. The other pictures I found on the web and on the hamb. Credit to those that took these great pictures. I keep a file of what I call "Race Haulers". Just let me know if you guys want more
