    I guess I am getting older but looking at all the old trailers reminds me of how much fun I had years ago and I am not sure why but it just seems like everything was easier and more fun in those day's

    Well I better get back to work before I fire myself.

    Thanks for the great pictures and memories that went along with them.

    The hot factory built trailer in the late 60's & 70's was the "Drag Star" by Bock (or Brock).
    Wonder where the old Ivo truck is now?

    I just finished this one to haul my HA/GR-style dragster. It utilizes a 1940 Chev one ton flatbed for the perimeter frame and crossmembers.

    This is Al Bergler (left) and Donnie Piper at Metro Beach, 1964. Al is still towing around the Bantam but the rig is slightly bigger.

    Great! Now I gotta' finish my digger so I can build a two wheel trailer. Cool pics. I just love the stuff from the '58-'60 era before the frames started to stretch. It took somer major balls to strap one of those on.

    Keep posting!
