Art (NcZuk), no time to talk or check forums- WRENCH damn you like you never wrenched before.... Ã‚Â You Ã‚Â "De Oppresso Liber" Ã‚Â man.
Houston we are green at go, T-minus 5 days and counting till Zuwharrie!!!See you guys there!
No, I didn't say it wasn't safe to tow with a Caddy or any other vehicle as long as it's done safely as a matter of fact I flat tow my Sammi and my brother flat tows his Sammi his behind his Safari Trek. Ã‚Â I'm Towing his Sammi to Medford, OR. this weekend behind my F-150, but at the posted Truck Speed, which is considered the legal speed, not 70 or 80. Ã‚Â Just because your rig can or is capable of doing so doesn't mean it's safe to do so, under certian conditions it isn't even safe to pull it at the legal speed even with all the proper safety equipment aboard.Hell, I'm a retired over the road driver Ã‚Â and on some occassion I've been there and done that. Ã‚Â Safely, yes most of the time, some of the time I pushed the envelope. Ã‚Â Do I recommend others to push the envelope like I did? Ã‚Â NO, I Don't and for someone to do so they are doing a disservice to others here on this board. Ã‚Â If this offends someone so be it.Like I said there are a lot of good people here and there is a alot of good information to be gleened from this website and I enjoy it.
LawDawgI wasn't refering to anyone in particular. Ã‚Â I was just refering to some info put out by some so called experts on how to tow a vehicle, who haven't got a clue. Ã‚Â Like the one who made the statement he towed his Sami down the Interstate on the ground at 70 - 80 MPH behind his Caddy a while back. Ã‚Â All I have to say is thank god I live on the opposite coast, Ã‚Â or the ones who are still wet behind the ears, who know everything about everything and who will give you advice on any or all subjects, yet if you handed them a wrench and asked them to perform the task they gave you advice on they wouldn't know how to perform the task or much less even know how to use the tool.
