[DML] Re: DeLoreans and Tow dollys



Having transported my Delorean once in the last couple of months, I 
found that it fit nicely on the car carrier that you can completely 
put the car off the ground, and on top of the trailer. It is a 
little more pricy to rent than the tow dolly, but since you cannot 
hook the front wheels up to the tow dolly, as the car is rwd, you 
would have to back it on. I am not entirely sure how to keep the 
wheels straight if you do.

My advice would be to either drive the car, or get completely on a 
trailer.

There was a few posts about this a few weeks ago (Early october I 
think)
