Lurker turned member

Just picked up a 1985 Cadet two weekends ago.
Its a bit on the rough side, but working to get it up to snuff.
Cool having something under 1,000lbs to pull behind a car.
no need for a truck!

I had been browsing alot before I decided to say no on the tear drop and yes to the older cadet. I like being able to stand up!(Well, almost haha)
Cheers!

Congrats on your acquisition! Almost 30 years ago, back in Poland, I used to have one. What car are you pulling it with?

Well, I'm not sure if you know but these were originally designed to be pulled by Fiat 126 that had a 4 speed manual transmission, 2 cylinder 23 HP engine and people did dare to pull it with such.

Put in a few photo's when you get a chance, it looks like a cool shaped trailer. Nice find.
