Wow there's something you don't see every day!

Those mirrors on the yellow tow car don't look like the usual front-fender-mounted variety. They look too far back. You don't think the guy has those towing mirrors screwed to the doors, do you? work

Those mirrors look like they are screwed down to me, but can't say for sure.

There was a picture on FB about a month ago of the yellow tow Challenger, mirrors are screwed on, said they have been that way for years.

I'm thinking the tow vehicle might be a clone - based on antennae placement

Rear spoiler from the pink car may be on the yellow one.

I am thinking his old lady told him to drag ass as the pink one is loaded with stuff that doesn't look like all car parts.

The yellow car has been mentioned several times over the years, the guy lives in Canada & has used it for towing for ages.

My first challenger i bought in 1979 had a trailer hitch on it.The guy hauled a boat with it.
It was a 73 rally 340 three speed stick. I still have the very rare hitch that was bolted to the frame.
