    I reckon they would have been fairly sprightly and fun in their day. I had fun drag racing a mate in his KE10 Corolla 1100 with my Dauph G with re-ground cam and bugger all else done to it. His had Weber and extractors but couldn't beat the Amédée tuned 850 powerhouse

    yeah John, saw 'Detroit' on the door of the recovery truck. this happened at an intersection and my take is that the driver of the transporter had to brake hard for some reason - wouldn't be surprised if the tie down systems were nothing other than a few light chains?

    Yes, looks like a crash stop accident! Regardless, it is a great photo. They are light cars, so I'd guess no tie down at all - I reckon you could hold one on with nothing more than sash cord! I saw the US spec over-ride tubes above the bumpers.

    Unsecured load would be the charge, I think......
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    I seem to recall that happening here in Adelaide where a Magna or 380 went over the front of the transporter just like this, except it was still at the factory and happened during loading. Big oops!
    cheers,
