    Old Sate House, Hartford, CT. Judging from the dirty tire marks on the left of the picture, where I work (Phoenix Building) is under construction.

    When I was a kid in the early 60's this same exact set-up was for sale at Elm Motors in Elmhurst NY. I used to hang out at the shop that serviced all of Elm's cars. I was inside this trailer and it had a cockpit over the gooseneck and you could sit there and look out at the scenery while being towed. It even had a type of intercom or phone that you could talk to the driver. The car was a 34 Graham like this one, I don't know if this is the exact one I was in but it is exactly the same trailer and car. Kerry I looked this rig up and it was in a museum in NZ and now resides in a museum in The Hague Netherlands maybe 34 Gaz has seen it.

    I don't know if a Youtube Video is off topic here.
    This is historic Stock car racing in Stratford NZ [ we spell it Stockcar as one word to describe the sport]

    Stockcar racing was introduced from the USA but in NZ it developed into a "Gladiator" sport.
    Contact was allowed by officials and encouraged by the promoters [it drew large crowds]

    The favorites were old Ford V8's with a few bars welded to them.

    As a Kid I grew up with all this, my family holidays were spent on the road with dad racing stockcars.



    I have a few old photos from this era, most are poor quality [If considered "Off Topic" I will stop posting them]

    A lot of the drivers were given nicknames [like wrestlers]
    Norm Wright was called "Norm She'll be Wright" ["She'll be right mate" is a Kiwi Saying]
