Above: Dr. Dick Thompson's Sting Ray arrives for the SCCA National at Cumberland, MD, on May 15, 1960. He won the Championship for the C Modified class that year, in the Sting Ray on the trailer. This rig was state-of-the art for a national campaign at the time. Briggs Cunningham and Lance Reventlow had transporters, but few others did. Enclosed trailers were just as rare.
Below: to borrow from Bob Dylan, "You can do what you want, Abe, but... the next time [I wouldn't pull a 2500 lb. tow with a 2500 lb. Corvair]." Bonus Difficulty Points if the Corvair was on cross-ply tires.
