I am looking for a car trailer to pull behind my 5th wheel. I bought a new toy and it won't fit in my 10ft garage. I will be doing some car shows and 1/4 mile races with it. I can tow up to 7,000 lbs behind my 5th wheel, so it is do-able and I have the tow vehical to do it safely. My new toy is a 1970 Chevelle SS 454LS6. Engine has been done by Campbell racing in Edmonton 625hp 675tq on a Mustang wheel dyno. Turbo 400 trany 3500rpm stall and 4:56 gears. This thing is a hoot to drive. Went through the 1/4 mile on the weekend @ 11.23 sec and I spun all the way through 3 gears. I need to get it to hook.
Cheers
Bear

Thanks for the good comments. I am looking to go with an enclosed trailer. And as for having to many toys, that is impossible
Cheers
