    Need an engine/tranny moved from SC to VA

    If the Seller will crate it & take to a Fastenal store - that is your best bet. Jim

    Gene Autry 1936 movie: masking identity of '36 Ford

    Sorry ....... i can’t see past the Cowboy Hats ..... Now I want me one of those big @ss cowboy hats ..... Cowboy Jim ( Looking for a big @ss cowboy hat )
  4. Reality Check If I want to store a modestly valuable car ..... i would NOT ideally want: Community Storage in a open floor space where other vehicles would be in close proximity to mine - being moved ( possibly driven ). I definitely would NOT want the Public At Large perusing my vehicle. I don’t know how you would get renters or liability insurance for rented space for car storage - let alone “ slip & fall “ insurance for people visiting. Jim

    Museum cars?

    Rod There is a general consensus about museum cars represented in the opinions given here - regarding what to offer for the car depends on a complete inspection by a qualified individual in person. No one can do that on the interweb. Jim
  7. Do you need a tax a tax shelter or a write off ? Great idea if you want to lose money real fast ...... Museum attendance for all venues has been steadily declining for years. Jim

    Museum cars?

    In my opinion - cars were meant to be Driven ...... Model Cars in most museums are dislay props. This is 1904 Ford Model B Serial Number 52 .... The only acknowledged Ford Model B known to exist in the world that is regarded as being largely original and unrestored. The other Ford Model B cars known are in either private collections or museums - none of which have been known to actually run in the lifetime of any person among us ..... With the exception of the Bill Harrah 1905 Model B which Stu Laidlaw had running many years ago when Bill was alive. Yet - against all conventional wisdom and regard - this car is currently being brought back to Life to actually run. This is only possible because the Owner is definitely not your average collector car custodian. Jim

    Towing a Zeyphr on a dolley

    This ...... Sounds like an accident waiting to happen. If the OP doesn’t have the money to transport a vehicle over a distance. Let it stay where it is. Jim
  10. Good news for those looking for an American made trailer tire .... @ https://corporate.goodyear.com/en-US/media/news/goodyear_launches_american_manufactured_trailer_tire.html I just installed (3) of these on the curb side of my enclosed trailer - interested to see how long they will last ....

    Uhaul Cab & Chassis...

    I posted the link because that is the truck chassis noted in the UHaul link you posted and the GVWR range is listed in the link - how the chassis is equipped will determine the GVWR. The 10,000 GVWR applies to that vehicle if used as a tow vehicle pulling a trailer. Regarding using it like a rollback to transport a vehicle without the advantage of a rollback with a deck that tilts & moves - seems like a lot of work to load & unload a vehicle. You can get commercial aluminum vehicle ramps thru Discount Ramps out of Wisconsin - that is where I buy my ramps - they would probably cost more than $2000. Looking at the images in the link - it appears the width between the fender wells might be less than you find in most full width car haulers ( 80 inches ). That means you have to modify the fender boxes to drive over them. Jim

    Uhaul Cab & Chassis...

    Unless you have a CDL - carry a log book - medical card ..... You are limited to driving a tow vehicle for private use up to 10,000 lbs. GVWR. That model lists a GVWR range of 18,000 to 26,000 lbs ...... @ http://www.auto-power-girl.com/specifications/gmc/gmc_topkick_c5500_crew_cab-208 Jim

    Vehicle Tow needed..Erie, Pa to Washington DC area???

    Wayne, The transport should have been addressed by both parties BEFORE the sale along with the storage. There is no cheap alternative way to transport an F650 Rollback Tow Truck with no engine - it has to be hauled professionally - if the Buyer is not prepared to pay the price then they should not have bought the truck.

    Vehicle Tow needed..Erie, Pa to Washington DC area???

    The Seller should NEVER offer advice or recommend a hauler to a prospective Buyer as it usually will end end up badly for them. A SERIOUS prospective Buyer will arrange their own transport. Anything can be transported provided you are willing to pay what it costs to move it. Jim

    Towing needed from Fargo ND to Memphis, TN

    Winter has arrived. Not much demand to transport vehicles into Fargo - you have to drop off before you can pick up. Most folks haul more than one vehicle at a time. If you don’t have concrete plans to keep the car - sell it where it sits. Jim

    Security certificate for website is expired ?

    So .... My website has been active since 20006 - this has never been issue. I would think if someone who was doing a search & was warned not to visit this site because the security certificate has expired - might not visit. Has the security certificate for this website actually expired ? If so - then why ? Jim
  21. Interesting car I dropped off today ..... I don’t haul too many of the big wide cars from Seller to Buyer in the states. They usually go overseas. Jim 1959 Buick Invicta Convertible

    Crew Cab from PA to SoCal

    Looks like you are a new member. You don’t state whether it is a Dually or not but I assume with a lift kit it is not. Any full size crew cab truck is the equivalent of two vehicles from a weight and length standpoint - with a lift kit it might fit on the back of a “ flying wedge “ open three car carrier but you will pay for two spaces - it might fit on the upper deck of a six or nine car open trailer but you will pay for two spaces. Buying most vehicles 2500 miles from where you live is not a good idea unless you can fly or drive out & drive it home or go get it with a trailer yourself. You bought two when you bought that truck - no one is going to haul it for what the auto transport brokers are telling you .....: Winter is just a few weeks away ..... Jim
