Larry- I can tell you that you really haven't experienced 'pucker' until your trailer leads your tow vehicle across a long, icy bridge. Came out of it alright, but wow!

biggest problem with a trailer in snow is the mess- everything on the trailer gets nasty from spray.

Use to live in Wyoming, worked for a hunting outfitter there for 4 years, use to tow gooseneck trailer filled with up to 12 horses during the nice long winter hunting season. Always had a blast on days off. Had afew snow machines. Speed is fun, under the correct circumstance. Its exceeding the limits of your abilities is what hurts.

Hey, David. Thanks for the picture. I've been trying to decide on wheels and your picture really gave me look at where I would be at with bullits. If you will . . .

What size are the wheels and brand?

What size are the tires and brand?

Ford Racing does not make a 9" bullit and that is what I want (I think) and I want both rims and tires the same size for rotating and autox.

Congrats on getting that far. Looks like you will be in good shape when the weather is better.

All the best, Don

Don, they are Bullit replicas 17-9 and 17-10.5 from Wheel Replicas and are the same as FFR now sell. Tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 255/40 and 275/40, expensive but they run with no vibration like some have had.
The main roads were clear that day so no problem towing. The body shop guys came over to pick it up with a big HD deisel crew cab truck, it pulls a load like this with no problem.

I once saw a strange looking shovel like that along time ago, but for the life of me, can't remember what it's used for.

That's not funny... not even close... ;)

(That's an ergonomic shovel which is supposed to be gentler to your lower back (if you were serious)... I prefer a 9HP Tecumseh)

David,

Tempo's look about the same in all colors so it doesn't really matter......

OHHH.....maybe you mean for the FFR....I was going blue until I say a pretty candy apple red & silver one....

that is an original 93 Tempo in appliance white, bought it used in 95 and it is the cheapest car to own that I have ever had. Hard to justify an expensive car to drive 10 minutes to work. The tools on the wall are gardening tools for ski season, best used by teen aged sons.

David, there's something wierd about the way those trailer wheels sit under the fender. Is that the OEM fender on the trailer? Have the axles been moved further apart? Just curious. Nice car sitting on the trailer , BTW.

I looked at the picture and I see what you mean. The trailer was borrowed by the bodyshop owner, so I don't know any details about it.
