The car makes people smile and is a lot of fun :)
It's surprising how many people have never seen one tho. Most of them here in Michigan have gone to rust heaven years ago.

The originals were a bit of a camper too. They were the first cars with seats that would recline flat, like a bed. :eyebrows:

We tow our 5 x 10 Tear with a 1992 Mazda 626 with a 2.2L and a manual 5spd. I would never use a car this small with an automatic transmission. The car had plenty of power and braking was good Our gas mileage went from 37mpg to 25mpg.

this is what I want to pull it with

Right now I will either using my 1990 Toyota Dx cab pickup with 6 cyl and 5 on the floor. to either carry it or pull it.

my mazda prodoge was totaled last year, replaced it with a 2001 Carolla with an automatic. I got an est. on hitch if trialer is not to heavy I will us this instead.
I do not think it would be wise for my Prius unless the trailer had it's own motor. or totally redo the trailer like this one below.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

When I'm by myself; I usually tow my trailer with my 56 Ford Thunderbird.

Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Ask yourself these simple questions every time you are in doubt about any action.
