    No idea but maybe had been a city bus maybe. Good thing no glass or they roll down must have been a bitch to get in and out of once inside.

    Slightly off-topic, but the trailer in post #872 appears to have no springs?

    RE: Trailer(s) with no suspension:

    i guess what i was trying to get at was, if the altered also had no suspension (or not much of one), then how did this work towing down the highway......?

  12. Mondello & Matsubara...Marked as an A/Altered, but with a blower? Wouldn't that be AA/A, on gas, or even AAF/A , on nitro?

  13. Good catch, I am not sure of the answer, maybe Dean or Loudbang will shed some light on that.

    I went 632 miles one way to Bonneville and about 400 miles to El Mirage without springs on the trailer plenty of times. The car is sprung though. 50 some years ago I went Los Altos to Fremont lots of times with an unsprung trailer and a solid rear altered. Never had and problems. Empty the trailer was horrible to tow. Bounced all over the place.

    The AA/ designation for blown cars came a little later, IIRC.

    I towed an unsprung trailer for years. Fantastic loaded, horrible empty. A mate put me onto a trick. If going any great distance empty, I'd take the wheels off the front axle and then it was great to tow. When I got to where the trailer was to be loaded I'd pulled it up onto a couple of wood blocks, put the wheels back on and run back off the blocks. A cordless rattle gun helped.

    Ha! Not so Loudbang! I just knew the car and watched it many times in the 60s in Oregon. Built and campaigned by Gary Coe in the pacific northwest. -EM
