  • The ultimate hauler!!

    WARNING: The thread this link is for is EXTREMELY long with TONS of pics...

    http://www.thelincolnforum.net/phpbb...pic.php?t=5434

    This trailer project was designed and built, and is owned, by my friend Barry Wolk from MI... no, he's not into Studes, but I got to know him through our mutual love of Lincolns [8D] Barry's an amazing guy, as well as quite a visionary...

    He was looking for a way to haul his show-quality 56 Linc Mark II conv.; he's not the kind of guy who's content with merely buying "close enough" when he wants something specific- constantly thinking, and super-sharp; plus a real quality person!!

    I know we're all about the Studes here- but I can't imagine anyone would read this and not find the project amazing!! Just be forewarned: This thread is 43 pages long- and counting [:0] since March '04- with literally DOZENS of pics... so plan accordingly! Having been in this trailer personally, I can say that any of the pics posted simply do not do it justice...

    Enjoy- or not- it's your choice!!

                        That's correct, Barry's easily capable of writing a check for whatever he wants- the approach I recommended to him But he got interested in having something unique- and boy, he accomplished that...

                        I know he's had many offers to buy the trailer... one guy offered him $100K cash-in-hand... he says if he figured $10/hr. for his time spent planning, trial-and-error, and building it he's probably got more than $100K into it... and that was before the accident repair...[B)]

                        The thing has such a visual impact when it arrives, I think it detracts from his absolutely stunning Lincoln [8D]

                        He's currently looking to build an equally unique tow vehicle right now; maybe an older aluminum Airstream motor home...

                        Can't wait to see what he comes up with...
