I wonder what those rain gutters are rated at? Do you think they are class 2?

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

Seen a couple VW Bugs with a set up like that. I have to assume some engineer on crack came up with this, and it went into production for about a year before the DOT shut it down.


1966 C-10 Step Side. 283, 4spd, 3.73 gear. 60K miles prior to restoration. 507 Paint Code. Currently in 10,000 pieces.
Transmission is done! Rear Suspension is done! Wheels are done! Bed bodywork is done! Soon to order a 383 crate.

Think about that thing in a panic stop- - - - -even with trailer brakes! I've seen a 1 ton dually pickup with a BIG horse trailer set up that way, but the superstructure surrounded the body and went all the way to the frame with a commercial 5th. wheel mounted on top. Watching the guy do a 180 with the tow rig and park the trailer in a tight spot was really entertaining.
