The Rampside was pressed into trailer towing duty today! It towed my tool trailer out of the garage and into the other side of the driveway. Total distance was at least 200 feet and no failures of any kind! grinning smiley

Backing was another issue altogether. Between the short wheelbase truck and short wheelbase trailer and no right mirror, it was difficult to stay on track. It is safely parked and will apparently live to tell another story. hahaha

So true!
I would rather back-up a FORTY-FOOT 5th-Wheel, than try to park a Ten-foot utility trailer, any day. hot smiley

Finally got my '60 sedan on the road a couple months ago. It hadn't been on the road for 27 years, and I've been bringing it back to life for the past 7. I run errands around town in it every chance I get. There are still some kinks to work out, but it's been fairly reliable and I love driving it. The very tired 80hp engine was at its limits during last weeks heat wave, which lit up a bunch of forest fires around here. Thankfully the smoke shifted long enough to catch a glimpse of sunshine.

Corvair Thermostats make the engine run at 225f minimum! so, 116 is nothing to the engine....it's the driver that suffers! GGG

A more artsy picture of me in my 66. I purchased it in December and have really been enjoying it so far!

Artsy picture of Zonker the first time I owned it.

Printed this way from 35mm color film...unknown why.

I call it "The Acid Vair"...perfect after that Portland C/L ad.

FINALLY!!!! first time getting her out on the road!!! Took the kids to run some errands. They look so miserable, they were getting annoyed at me for having to take a picture at every store, but when they are 40, they will look back and treasure it, I hope. After the first stop, my daughter, got back in the car and as she is opening the window she says "WOW, COOL, I CAN OPEN THE WINDOWS WITHOUT THE CAR BEING ON" I was laughing so hard.

Looks GOOD!

P.S. On maiden voyages I usually have the passengers wear comfortable walking shoes.

My Ugly Rampy doing what Rampsides do best - haul large heavy loads.
It's fresh 110 engine and powerglide really make a nice hauler.

After sorting out the turbo woes (thanks Steve Goodman and Grant Young) I celebrated 500 miles of no turbo oil leak, a.k.a smoke screen, with a drive into the Nebraska countryside.
Really have to start on the body work. The 35 year old friends garage while the parents were on vacation paint job is DONE.
