I updated the site to give a better introduction instead of the old one which was just a series of blog posts.

Can I be your friend? Can I go for a ride? Can I borrow it this weekend?

I didn't know what it was used for originally, but I liked it so it was re-chromed with the bumper. My friends used to joke it was for towing when it broke down.

Now we figure that it was used to put a boat in the water so you could see.

Oh, didn't notice it in the before picture... does it have one on the rear too? It could be for a boat or other trailer for that matter. My dad kept one on the front of his tractors and I ran one on the front of an old Jeep. A lot easier to maneuver a trailer in tight spaces that way than backing one in...

Regardless, I love your house-car, ultra cool and your updates/mods are extremely tasteful and compliment the original design very well.

It had a hitch on the back and I had it beefed up to handle the storage pod. The guy I bought it from mentioned that he used to pull a boat with it.

The Forney Museum of Transportation is showing the Great Dale in Denver until March 31, 2019, along with some other amazing trailers built by some friends.

Also, our friend decided to try his hand a tiki carving and this is what he produced on the first try.

The first Great Dale House Car tiki.
