Do you know how many people are in the car?

This is the kind of people that I give a lot of room to on the highway.
Do you not remember when we had fender skirts and lowered cars? Would have driven the wt police absolutely bonkers.

Sure I remember fender skirts - had them on my 1953 and 1957 Chevys.

Never did the lowering thing, but remember see them - old Mercurys especially.

Ride was horrible, but the cornering capabilities were awesome!

Yeh - remember reading the magazines showing what George Barris ( think that was his name ) out in L.A.did to those old Mercurys by chopping and channelling them.

Reminds me of the time we towed a 1968 18' Shasta travel trailer with a '69 Pontiac GTO from Gander, Newfoundland to Cold Lake, Alberta in 1973. No such thing as Weight Police in those days !!
