LOL - thanks for asking.

No - the Slim Jim was barely working when I got the car. I yanked it pretty much immediately and now have a TH400 from a '67 Riv in there.

I don't actually flat tow on the public roadways anymore. I don't trust the other drivers to pay enough attention. For the Widetrackers Dustoff, where those pics were taken, I drove the Grand Prix and trailered the GTO and then hooked them up on the show field for display.
