I will soon be making a trip to Oregon to pick up my Z for a 250 mile trailer adventure. Unfortunately there's snow in the forecast, so, it might not be as soon as I want. Anyway, I've already found a few threads on this subject, but, nothing explains the proper procedures to do this correctly. Do any of you have photos or advice for the trip? I'm planning to rent a U-Haul car-hauler. Here's one of the threads I found: I did see a few tips: Nose first Use the provided tire-straps in the front Cross brace the rear end with ratchet tie-downs I'm a bit concerned there will be some gravel on the road so I'm not too excited about winter towing. But, if I may not have a choice at this time of year. Does anyone know if it's a good idea to put a car cover on before making the trip? I would think the wind would cause some paint scratches. I'm not too excited about rain, if I run into it along the way. Appreciate any advice you guys might be able to help me with. Thanks! Mike
I'm hauling a 240Z on the dual axle car transport trailer. Someone that's familiar with those might help me out with loading tips. Should I drive it on nose first or back it on? Is there anything I should take caution with besides the obvious? Car has no spoiler or front air dam. 195/70-14s stock wheels and tires. It's going to be a close fit I can tell already. Thanks for any advice. Cliff
I want to use a tow dolly to move a rolling 73 240Z parts car with relatively little structure rust about 20 miles. The car has no engine and the driveshaft and transmission are out. With the car not running how do I get the car up on the dolly? Can I use a come along? Can I jack it up and put it on two jack stands behind the front wheels on the tension control rod mounts and back the dolly underneath the front wheels that way? I wonder if the jack stands would get in the way of the dolly if I do that. I have read other threads and info on the net, no one says how you do this so it must be either really easy or impossible. There is no bumper so I can't use a tow bar I don't think. U-Haul has the idea that the towing car should weigh at least 750 lbs more than the towed car. I will be towing a 2000 lb 240Z with a 2200 lb car, has anyone had a problem with the relative weight like that? Thanks for any ideas.
