Charlotte transporter Show

Post by DiggerD on Wed May 12, 2010 11:09 am

Anybody here going to the Charlotte transporter Show this weekend? I am not able to make it, and have some parts I need picked up. Was hoping that someone local was attending and could deliver/pick up some parts for me?

Thanks

They're here. They stayed in the van during the hurricane winds and sleet Saturday night at the dragway affraid My two EZ ups (with 4 flywheel anchors) went sailing 30 feet, while I was trying to sleep under it. Thank God it didn't hit anything. The twisted mass kinda looked like two handicapped spliders mating under a flagpole.

I've got a ton of parts do dry off, oil, and re-bag. What a night.

Saw on another forum where a guy was dolling a Double Cab to this show and he wreched on the interstate with it. Tore up the DC. What a shame. Looked but can't find it now.

Wasn't dought'en ya Dig, I've been looking at Bay stuff and happen to see it on the Kustom Coach Wreks site. Bummer for sure, but it is just bruised a bit. I'll never dolly one after seeing this. Congrats by the way for the pic in HotVWs. Very cool! One last thing, I'm not avoid'en ya either, somehow we've missed each other the last two shows, Reynolds and BAP. Suspect

Evidently this was not the first time a bus and a tow dolly had it out..... Shocked




Seems that the weight distribution of a bus is not very compatable with tow dollies. I think this would be a problem with any rear engine vehicle on a tow dolly. It is probably close to the tolerance point so thats why you don't hear of it happening all the time, but a gust of wind, evasive manuver, etc. and you end up with this..

Bob, I didn't think you were doubting, some people post on several forums. Thats just where I remembered seeing it. Smile
