Still have to grab the last two as we ran out of light today.  It was an interesting day with only two frozen rear wheels thankfully.  We had some help from the guy I bought these from because he wanted them gone just as much as I wanted them for their convertible parts :)

tomorrow we grab the rest.

Oh, and didja ever think a Jeep Rubicon could tow a 5000 pound monster?  yeah, me either but it did and did it with gusto.

I love that picture with the red, white and blue cars in a row.

Cool   If i had the space I would have way more than the 5 Eldo's I own now. 

Can a Jeep tow an Eldorado or is it a good safe thing?  Those are two entirely different questions.   I used to think a 1/2 ton truck was a towing machine.  I then owned a heavy 1 ton dually for a while and that opinion changed.  Now my current 3/4 ton scares be sometimes.  I am also a firm believer in working trailer brakes (not to mention I believe its the law in all 50 states when you are at the weight of an eldo on a trailer).  At the least working trailer brakes will save you from having to replace the rotors on your tow rig whatever it is since about 90% of the rotors now days are too thin garbage that will warp just by looking at them.

Oh no way this is going to be a regular occurrence TJ.  my buddy's tow vehicle just died (blown engine) and we needed to get these out of the old chicken coop they were stored in pronto.

Also, snow's coming (maybe?  eventually?  someday when we stop having 60+ weather in new england)  and we didn't want to have to dig out the doors to the building or work in the blasted cold.

You still have 60's?   Dang.  Im sitting here today thinking the 30's with light wind is likely as good as its going to get for a while so I should get off my butt and get some things moved before they are buried in snow.
