Im going south to pick up a 89' Trans Am and I am woundering how to pull it on a car dolly. I use a flat bed to tow normally so this is new for me. My question is how do I load the car onto the dolly. Do I load the car with the front wheels on the dolly and put it into neutral or load it with the rear wheels on the dolly and lock the steering? Thanks


Here is a dolly like the one Im using


Here is a car kinda like the one Im towing (this one is alot nicer :lol: )

I've always seen cars with the front on...judging by the clearance angles, if you put the back on the dolly, you'll rip the front bumper off...

Business in the front party in the back. `)


I have always had a soft spot for GM sports cars. Plus me and friend have opened up a garage and we will be flipping this car on for a profit. It will be one of our first sales. :thumb:

I think with rear wheel drive, you are going to have to put the front wheels on the dolly and disconect the drive shaft; unless it's a short distance. :?:

What engine? How restored do you want it, or let me ask this, how much do you want to spend including shipping? I can do miricles on shoestring budgets. :thumb:

But yes you should have taken that car. They are a blast to own, although I like the 76+ modles better.
