Do what I did. Drop a 2.3 Ford in it (hop it up a little).
It will pull it then!
I wish I had my old Celica!

My first car was a 1954 Chevy bel aire - four door with power glide. (Never did know what the heck that was). I sold it to join my sweetie at college. I've always missed that car. Its rounded dumpling look would be perfect pulling my burro. I kept the sweetie instead and that has worked out rather nicely for 47 years. Appropriate to mention here that we met in drivers education. : )

It has been a while since anyone has posted here but I thought I would give it a try. I bought a 1969 Karmann Ghia hardtop for my husband when he turned 50 and we both get a great deal of enjoyment from it. I don't have any pictures but I found a similar image that I included below.

AK, I too had a 70's VW Bug. It was a pretty boring car so I spent a Winter back then sprucing it up. A bit of slicing and dicing. The old Harley springer front end worked great with a Triumph frame in the middle. Note..... 71 Pinto seat was very comfy.

After a search over a couple of years, I finally found the Porsche I was looking for... a 1987 Porsche 911 "M491" coupe... one of only 62 made. Absolutely gorgeous!

The 1966 Chrysler was the best car I ever owned. Just loafed going down the highway. Back seat big enough to lay down across for a nap. The AM radio only was sort of a drag but I added an FM converter under the dash. Remember those?

http://www.curbsideclassic.com/wp-co...6-NY-sedan.jpg

At one point I considered taking out the back seat, re-framing the area going into the trunk, putting a kitchen in the trunk, making a tear drop style camper out of it. Sad to say a station wagon passing on the shoulder hit the front corner when I was in a driveway and while the body soaked it up (headlight did not even break) the front suspension needed extensive repairs I could not afford.

Man my scamp would look great behind one of those!

Sweet.... My dad also had a 66 Chrysler Windsor. Traveling through Quebec one Xmas season a 1959 Pontiac tried to make a turn in front of us. Dad's Chrysler caught the front corner of the Pontiac and peeled off the whole front end from the firewall forward. The Chrysler had a small dent and scratch on the front fender beside the headlight. We settled up with the police and carried on with our trip east. His Chrysler back then was a TV for a 21' Golder Falcon TT.

Also.... My dad's white Windsor was identical to Andy Thomson's (from Can Am) dad's 66 Chrysler shown here with one of his Airstreams.

Here is the story if you are interersted.... post#21 '64 Buick Tow car? - Page 2 - Airstream Forums

Another big Chrysler from that time frame. Apparently they were preferred as tow vehicles from that era because of the way they designed the rear leaf springs and the use of torsion bars on the front end. The torsion bars proved to be better than coils for some reason. Stock car driver Richard Petty also made similar comments about the Chrysler suspension designs on his stock cars from the 60's/70's.
