I have a huge favor to ask some nor cal el camino owner or friend of yours...I have a project 73 SS with no engine in it. It is in South Lake Tahoe. I am 6ish hours away in the Ukiah area. I need my car here to work on...
Can someone help me out and...
Tow my car for me? :oops: I have no truck or trailer. :-(
I'll get you some beer of your choice and pay for gas? Please?

I can't help you as I'm in S. Nevada, but if no responds, you could always rent a tow bar from U-Haul, also a hitch if your veh. is not equiped with one. That would be a turnaround trip for you, and wouldn't cost big $$$$$$$. Just a thought.

I checked uhaul allready, they wont rent a tow bar for a RWD, they require a full flat bed trailer...which requires a lvl 3 hitch...Also, I live up a windy mountain...I don't have any vehicle with a hitch that could tow the beastly elk.

bump for me, i still need a tow....or a hook up with engine/install in reno/area

nope, i don't think they would do it anyway, its over 50 miles and the car didn't break down, its got no engine. thanks for the idea though...

I just called a local towing company, they quoted me $1500!?!?! to tow it. I mean, I could buy a trailor for that price n borrow a truck.
No one has a trailor and a free day to help out a norcal guy with a elk and a dream?

I now have some cash. Word. So I need someone in NorCal, preferably in the Tahoe/reno area, to take that cash from me. In return i'm looking for a
GM 6.2/6.5 Diesel...Turbo?
a 350/400 chevy with 350+hp
Someone to install purchased engine into 73 SS shell.
PM me or post here!

I know you already said you don't have AAA, but to clear things up, they do actually tow a vehicle whether it broke down or not. I believe you get 4 tows per year and with each tow I think it's the first 10 miles are free, then you pay extra per mile after that.
Good luck though, hope you can work something out to get your elk to you.
