i thought i would post photos of my three most recent sets of wheels. for what i paid for the 2003 international alone (top photo) i could have bought just about any shelby on the market, so i have to keep reminding myself that a shelby doesn't generate revenue. unless...do you think i could install a hydraulic wheel lift on the back of a gt500 vert? :p

I dunno... that seems like the ultimate in excess. Do you really need your very own tow rig for each car on your family? :p


I take it you plan to do some towing?

no, your first hunch was right. the stang goes on the new one. the suburban will go on the chevy and i'll pull the caravan with the ford.

actually, i've recently purchased an auto repair and towing business and these are the three trucks that go with the business. i'm looking for a body man and i plan to open an auto body shop on the premises, too. i also got the go ahead today from a client who wants me to restore his '73 mach one.

A towing company huh...OOOO, lets see, now if you spot a classic car needing a resto sitting in the street, no or expired plates,call the cops, get it ticketed, and hand them your business card, and pic it up in 30 days. You just might snag something good. My buddy has a tow business. He got a call from a vocational school at the end of the school year from the mechanics class instructor who wanted this old 60 something Galaxy convert taken away because they were getting into fuel injection too deep to be messing with carbs. He got the car for free and the best part is it had a 428 in it. ::

That's some nice equipment. I hope everything goes well in your new business venture. How's the Ft. Smith area? From the ads I saw in the paper while visiting Eureka Springs, it seems that there are lots of classic cars and trucks in that area.

Nice looking rigs...best of luck

I drove a tow truck in Buckhead (up town Atlanta) for about 6 months...that is probably the only job I have had that I would not even remotly consider doing again....but then again I didn't own the rig...I just drove to the crappy jobs and hocked em up

Wow, pretty soon you'll be seeing images like this:

Yup, thats my car on the stretcher. :( Though it sure is a lot nicer to have it on a flatbed than the other options. I thought that was a nice tow truck too!

OH WOW!!!!! I love your international!!! FYI, keep an eye on the oil pump...not sure how early in the year yours was built, but they are notorious for going out. Ask me about the 2 times (both in sweltering heat in the middle of CA traffic) when I found out the hard way! They are terrific rigs otherwise, I LOVE MINE! Yours is what I want to add to our fleet!!

Here's Moneymaker his dream is to become a car hauler like yours:
