Convert your Camaro into a Wrecker?? Here's how.. :)
« on: April 25, 2016, 01:27:23 PM »
This is not camaro related, unless you have considered conversion into an automotive wrecker, but I thought this was very interesting, as I'd never heard of this before...  I suppose even *I* am not old enough.. :)

I have never heard about that fad.  That a lot of work for something that will sink to the ground when you put the weight of another car on the end :D

One could buy that, restore it, and head to a car show and be *guaranteed* there will not be another like it there..  :)
.. and you could even tow off any 'show cars' that won't start after the car show.. :)

It is different, make you wonder what cars it hauled back in the day, because I don't see it pulling any of the late 50's or early 60's impalas, 300's, galaxies. I could see a period correct early ford hot rod behind it though.
