When we had a motorhome, we had a Ford Probe GT. It was one of Fords better kept secrets. The car was fast and a blast to drive on the back roads.

You have all been so helpful in creating ideas that I thought it was only appropriate that I let you know what we finally decided on. Today we entered an agreement to purchase a 2002 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. I'd always wanted a convertible and life with its many complexities just seemed to keep getting in the way. With the 1999-2004 Mustangs all being towable four down with a manual it became the first and finally the last choice.

Thanks for all your great input. This was a fun thread to watch and we really appreciated your thoughts. See you all down the road!

Two seats, Handlebar direct steering and throttle. Foot operated brakes.
The doors and roof are removable. Plastic body panels and floor. A steel box section chassis. 50 mph feels like 100. Its crazy.

No A frame or dolly. All I do is slide a 2 inch square steel box section a meter long into a corresponding chassis section, held with pins, on the other end is a standard ball hitch. The front of the vehicle is lifted clear of the road surface and dropped onto the RV hitch.

Awesome! . . . where did you get it?

Found it on Craigslist however it was a couple of hours away. I'd missed out on at least one really nice one close to home. When they are priced right, they go quick.

This will make the second major thing I've purchased off that service with the first being a laptop computer. It's not for everyone as "buyer beware" takes on new meaning when going this direction.

Thanks for asking!
