Tow’d

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Scrapbook - Wayne Wood­bury

In the March 2018 Scrap­book sec­tion, John Hayward asked about the lights on the back of his old stock car. Back in the “old days,” most cars were flat towed with tow bars. Trail­ers or trucks to haul a race car for most small-time rac­ers were un­heard of. If you could barely af­ford the car, you sure as heck couldn’t af­ford a ded­i­cated tow rig. So rac­ers mounted tail­lights on the back of the race car for the tow home af­ter the race in the dark.
