Road trips and towing
« on: February 04, 2016, 07:52:47 PM »
Who's done any serious towing with their Camaros over the years? Got any pictures? I crack up when I think about how much I did it with my 84 Z28 and 93 Z28. I drove from Mass to SoCal (Camp Pendleton) and back, Mass to Florida and back a few times.
The funny thing is, I still have that trailer that a girl in welding shop welded up for me 25+ years ago. Made out of a pop up trailer suspension. Made it a tilt and everything.

Somewhere in Texas or New Mexico.



I towed this jetski and my Harley back from Cali.

Don't have any pictures, but my very 1st Camaro was a brand new '76 base car that I purchase in Sep 1975 right after graduating from college for a grand total of $5,000 tax, title, out the door.  Nothing special, matter of fact the lowly 305 cid with all of the Rube Goldberg smog/pollution equipment, resulted in only about 140 Hp at the flywheel on a good day.  Talk about not being able to get out of its own way!  But in any event, it was new, it was a Camaro, and it was all mine.

Two years later I was moving from Houston, TX to Baton Rouge, LA and had all of my worldly possessions in a small U-Haul trailer being towed by my '76.  It was probably a ridiculous looking sight, but it worked.
