No surprise i took this photo today while in heavy traffic, most of which was headed to the big NASCAR race in Richmond today (us headed to the OBX). I guess this suburban family realized that their Murano didn't quite fit in with the numerous jacked-up Chevy pickups and Fox-body mustangs that they'd have to park with, so they accessorized...

The two cars that I rolled with for about 200 miles on the way to the outer banks....

they were weaving in and out of traffic but I managed to stay with them somehow, though my vehicle was a bit less quick.

My rally navigator assisted in finding gaps into the fast lanes..(wife sitting in the back entertaining the baby)

For 200 miles I also got to think about how much sexier the carrera is from behind than the cayman....

very true, but place said 911 motor into the Cayman, and...wait, Porsche doesn't want us to consider such possibilities.

True. If I won the lottery my first purchase would be a 911 GT3, no question.

Dead pickup turned trailer is nothing new out west. We have a 58 short bed Fleetside (first year!) Chevy. The engines crap out long before body rot gets em'.

Sometimes I feel like the only person who likes the Cayman over the 911

Hey mad, you are not alone. I think the Caymen is stunning. I think it's a better shape than the 911.

+3. It is cheaper and would be easier on my wallet if I could ever afford one..

it's not that it's new to me at all...we do have them around here too. But usually you see them towed by Ford or Chevy pickups, not Nissan Muranos.

I believe the trailer in this pic was from a Mazda B2000 pickup....

I love the look of the cayman!

It's funny this thread alternates between porsches and pickup truck bed trailers...

I like the truck-box trailers, recycling at it's finest.

Now the one I saw the other day that was made out of a grand caravan made me worry a bit...no frame rails on that thing!.

My trailer has been a trailer longer than it has been a truck.

It's a 1948 Ford.

A friend had a light blue Ford P/U, and ran across another one in identical color, but the cab was trashed, so he turned the bed into a trailer. The mattching color made for a very good looking setup.

Now that is pretty cool. If I was going to do that, that is the way to git er done!

I keep having this urge to buy a front wrecked E36, cut the trunk and quarters off, weld it up to a trailer frame and use that behind my Ti

If I ever win the lottery, I am making a Cayman GT3 RS....

I too like the Cayman better, but the LOUD colors of the GT3 would look SICK on it.
