We posted this picture of our Toyota Toyota MR2 heading for an autocross behind our Toyota Tundra, and our friend Scott Webb countered with this OG shot of his Toyota Supra behind his Toyota Hilux back in 1992.

It's a good idea to have a parts car handy at all times.

As a result of what's either a complete lack of loyalty or an open minded acceptance of all brands I've never owned a tow vehicle and race car from the same manufacturer at the same time.  When my tow rig was a Chevy my race car was a Ford (sponsored by a Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac dealer) and I spent a lot of time working on Dodge race cars.  When it was a Dodge I didn't have a race car but spent most of my time working on Ford race cars  When it was a Ford the race car was a Chevy.  Now I have a Dodge (Well, RAM Really) and three race cars.  A Mazda, a Ford powered Crossley and a Chevy.

Here is a shot I took in the pits at PIR many years ago at one of the early vintage races. An MGA coupe towed by an MGC automatic.

I towed my 1985 CRX Si race car to many races, behind my 1996 Acura SLX.

I can't seem to find a picture of it, from over 10 years ago.
