That would be pretty cool to see a shrink wrapped mustang drive go by on a trailer.
Take a good look at many of the new cars delivered on trailers. The windows are covered with an adhesive backed material to protect them. If you pull a car on an open trailer or car dolly, a couple of layers of shrink wrap would be good inexpensive protection. If you want to tempt the elements, road debris or potential vandals, don't use it.

haha/\ just shrink wrap the entire car :P
Or invest in aluminum foil and wrap the whole car in it.  :)




GREAT NEWS!!! I AM BORROWING AN 18' ENCLOSED TRAILER FROM A FELLOW HARLEY RIDER!!!!!!! WHAT A RELIEF!!!!! ;D
Great, now you can rest easy about getting it home in good condition without dings.

You guys have probably been noticing that when you hit the quote button above, and type your response after the [/quote] your message stays in the blue area, and not down under in the white area.  Thierry is working on it.  Hang tight.

Do you actually hunt with a bow?  And, if so, where?

You bet i hunt with a bow!!! LOVE IT!!!! Hey, i got the car back today!!!! WOW!!!!  We got back yesterday about midnight. 1100 miles in 36 hours! It was worth it! This car is NICE!!! WELL taken care of. The neatest thing happened while we were there. The guy who used to own it stopped by for service to his truck he traded the mustang for. I talked to him and he said he LOVED the car, but didn't drive it enough to justify having it. He said he never wanted to see the car again after trading it, and there it was being loaded into a trailer! He said it turned heads wherever he went. I believe him! He drove it  a whole 3000  miles in 3 years!!! Now, back to bowhunting. I LIVE for it!! I'd rather be bowhunting than....... fill in the blank! Do you bowhunt? Also, i saw the time of am you sent the prior message. Is that right?? Jeff ;D

I used to hunt deer with a bow here in Northern California. Got several with a Kodiak Bear compound bow 'tuned' to 75 lbs at 32 inches draw. Even tried some bow fishing in the American River. Not much luck there. Bursitis in my right shoulder forced me to do some horse trading. Swapped the whole setup for a M1 Garand and some bucks.

Nah, I don't bow hunt.  I hunt with a rifle on horseback.  My 30-06 will make a big buck lay down and never get up.  The problem with hunting on a horse, is that you have to manufacture a way to get the meat back to the house.  Nowadays, I just cal the wife and tell her to bring the 4X4. ;D

I'm an old bastard, and can't fuck around with strenuous activities, so use the most intelligent way possible.  Some of you 25 year old guys will finally figure out that you don't have to prove your manhood every day. You will also figure out that it is a whole lot less strenuous on your body to convince someone younger to do the work for you.   ;D

When I was 52 I could put up several tree stands in a day.  You just need to exercise daily to keep up.   However, at the ripe old age of 65 I am starting to slow down quite a bit.

Yeh, I can still put them up, just not as fast. But the thrill of the hunt keeps me going! It's all in the game. I love the whole ball of wax. Cutting shooting lanes, trying to anticipate where the deer will come from. Looking for deer sign, strategy!!!! Oh, and not to mention SHOOTING one!!!!! :)

The only part of a deer I like to eat outright, is the back strap.  The rest is ground up with pork to make sausage.  Ok, we are getting a little off topic here, and as a moderator, I guess my duty is to keep us on task, but what the hell.  We are not real busy today...... ;D

Yeh, but YOU started the discussion! But... i LOVE talking bowhunting! But... alas, you're right! A mustang site needs mustang talk.. Maybe we can start a hunting site!!  Now, on to mustangs.. my baby is safe in the garage and i just stare at it wishing for spring!!! I need to pull the other car and my truck out of the garage to take a pic of the mustang. But... right now we'e getting yet more snow so i'm not pulling them out just yet. I will someday!!!! Oh, and by the way.. I LOVE backstraps!!!!!!!  ;D ;)
