I like to take my toys with me. In the past, with my truck camper, I've towed my m/c on a trailer with me. When I got to places with twisty roads, like Northern California, I'd off load the bike and go enjoy the twisty roads.
Now, with the Scamp
, and the pretty wide spread prohibition on towing more than one trailer, I can't tow my little green fun car that I spent 3 years building.
But I got to thinking, since I'm the builder and wasn't required to declare a towing capacity for the structural enginerring inspection, that I can declare whatever towing capacity I want. After all, a tractor unit tows trailers many times heavier than it. So I'm going to call it my tractor. The trailer has great brakes
, good enough to also stop the car, er, tractor if need be, after all it only weights 1260 lbs.
So I was happy to see when I went to hook up that the reinforced area for the spare tire almost matched the hitch height perfectly. Electrical
wasn't an issue because it took me 3 months to wire the car and I know every wire by heart.
The aluminum tongue box matches the aluminum on the car. It should, it's probably left over pieces. I painted the car in my backyard spray booth. Maybe I should paint
to match. How sharp would that be.
The only negative is the car doesn't have a top. But the forecast for the next couple of days is for good weather so tomorrow it's off up the twisty Sea to Sky highway for a shakedown.
