Car trailers and transport

Post by Victoracing » Fri Jul 23, 2021 10:51 pm

What is your coolest, favorite method of transporting the race car?

Yes, I agree that the only way to do it in 1959 was to drive your Courier to the track, unbolt the windshield and muffler, and pump up the tire pressures.
A trailer was for those "rich guys".


But this post is to drum up the coolest, ingeneous rigs out there. Add your best finds.

Seeing this equipment at an SCCA Major got me started on the topic of this thread.

Speaking of "rich guys and trailers", I love that Mercedes cab forward design. So odd. This one is Jay Leno's.
