Sometimes some crazy awesome things pop up for sale and this time we were lucky enough to have one of you guys send it to me! A random old trailer with extremely weathered Dale Earnhardt Goodwrench graphics on it... Turns out to be a legit Richard Childress Racing show car hauler from back in the day. We installed a gooseneck hitch on Elvis and hit the road to a small town in the middle of Missouri to find out what the deal is with this big old thing! Being from 1989 it had some issues on the way but luckily @Kenny Wallace comes in clutch to save the day!

    Do you think we should find a period correct dually to match the trailer 🤔 Retro Merch! Stapletonautoworks.com

      How cool would it be to find the original black dually to restore and reunite it with the trailer. 😎

      @Stapleton42 Thinking it was a Dale owned truck but anyway a colab at the FF may grow your channel some.

    Mitch, glad to see you like the trailer! We had done some research before we sold it. I'm just glad to see someone that knew it's value and appreciated it. Had alot of people that wanted to cut it up and make side by side haulers. Looks like she's in good hands. Goodluck sir!

  • ShadowWarrior_69

    A period correct dually with a modern drivetrain in it would make a great hauler combo.

      No if it gong to time period correct needs to to be 100% time period not with modern driveline

      @Stapleton42 that’s what I’m doing he had a what ever it takes attitude and once my Chevy is on the road I’m getting a job then I’m going to start in the low racing bracket because I live somewhat by a race track Delaware motor speedway if you look it up it’s in Canada it’s apart of the Canadian nascar series and that’s the dream for me man!

    I agree that you definitely need a period-correct tow rig. Such a cool find! And it's really cool that a few of the Nascar legends are showing you respect and appreciation for keeping the history alive.

    That is one badass cool find! Saw your video posted in here after returning from the tire shop, what a time capsule for sure! So glad you & Logan care enough about NASCAR memorabilia to find/rescue stuff like this. You all know I'm with you here, excellent video, thanks man!

    Holy fit shuck! That's a badass hauler for Ralph. It'll be some sweat-time for sure, but once you get all the leaks sealed, the electric/hydro sorted, and the inside spruced up it's going to be one hell of a nice hauler. First things first, pull and repack the bearings with fresh grease, and if there's any doubt, swap 'em out. Axles are hard to get right now and for a few bucks and a couple of hours it's cheap insurance. While you're in there put in a 'bearing buddy' and call it good forever. Running light ckt is probably one of the 50 marker lights corroded and shorted to ground....that'll be fun to chase.

    Helluva find bud!! Personally, I’d just wash & polish it up plus replace the missing decals like was suggested. Then get it mechanically sound and get the wiring straightened out. I wouldn’t try to make it look brand new. The chipped paint that shows the Chattanooga Chew yellow adds to the history. IMO Cheers

  • PokeDadTyler

      @Stapleton42 you are welcome. Proud to support you guys. The content keeps getting better and better and I learn so much. This trailer is so freaking badass. I hope sometime I can get down to NC and meet you guys and have you help me with a couple small things on my Burb that are a PITA and I can't figure them out. It's only my second GMT800, my first being my 01 Yukon XL gas truck, and this suburban is an 04 flex and it keeps giving me P0178 and P0443 codes and you have to floor the pedal for it to start after it's been sitting. I had ran some fuel system cleaner in it and then replaced the busted ass coolant temp sensor harness and sensor, and the codes went away and it started perfectly until the other day it started acting up again. Also when you unplug the MAF while it's running, it doesn't change the idle or anything. It runs fine with it unplugged.

    These videos are so damn cool, the history on this stuff is interesting. Especially the videos on the camper…. Definitely need a matching Dually to pull this trailer.

    That's one kick ass piece of history right there. Would be cool to see old pictures of it from back in it's days, even cooler to find a period correct dually for it. Other than a few mods and making sure it's ready for long trips this will be a real head turner with it's original looks.

      @Stapleton42 doesn't really matter how much of it you were around for, the fact that you're interested in documenting and preserving it is a big deal. You don't have to witness something to respect and honor it.

    Stapleton, you never seem to not impress me with each video you do! Another great find and wish you the best in whatever you do with it! $7 grand is a mighty fine deal for a piece of racing history, even if just a show car trailer. Awesome you got the chance to meet up with Kenny. Looking forward to that video!

    • CarrsLLC Carrillo
      CarrsLLC Carrillo

      @Stapleton42 oh I believe your trailer is legit alright, no doubt about it. I'm just saying the one that was stolen back then , wonder if it's the same one that is in your possesion. I think it was possible that race teams (especially the bigger teams) had more then one show car and trailer to travel around the country but then again, I could be wrong on that one as well. I wish this memory of mine would of hit me sooner when I visited the RCR shop last October. I would of asked about this story to one of the personal to see if it valid. Anywho enjoy your find!

    • Stapleton42
      Stapleton42

      Interesting… I do have the title for it so it’s legit 😂

    • CarrsLLC Carrillo
      CarrsLLC Carrillo

      ...also I have a mini story to tell after watching this video. I remember the Goodwrench showcar and trailer being stolen. Not sure if it's the same trailer though? This is what I recall: I believe it was during the '95-'96 race season towards the fall. Up here in northern Illinois, a show car was to be displayed at a local Chevy dealership around the Arlington Heights area. Unfortunately, overnight the trailer was stolen, broken into and showcar was stolen. When the car was eventually found, it was completely gutted and only the frame and bare wires were left. Now this was not on the local news or even in the papers. The only reason I know about this story (even though it's been so long ago) is because a buddy of mine had a freind who worked at the towing company that they had to tow the empty trailer to their impound. Now to validate this story and I need to find in my set of ol' vhs race tapes, I believe it was at Phoneix race where the towing company called in during the live broadcast of the race trying to let them know that they have in their possession the GM Goodwrench trailer and that it needed to be picked up from their impound. But I guess that was misunderstood once the word was passed along to Mike Joy where he reportedly said live on the air that the showcar was found... So if anyone recollects about this story I'm talking about please chime in, I'm pretty sure I'm not making this up...

    Man old NASCAR guys are just awesome. Your hanging out with legends. I'm 36, and grew up with drivers from this era. These guys are my favorite. Ive used the magnetic lights before, I kept them in the toolbox for a few months, then one day I ended up dragging the light off on one side(stupid tall curb......) I pulled them out and stuck them on. And realized the same thing you did. Frickin amazing for the price.

    This trailer could not have gone to better people then you two. You will do everything to preserve its originality and its not going to just anyone that needs a combo trailer for whatever. Cool find happy for you both on this buy. Sure a period correct truck would be cool also its not if you need it its can you find one in descent shape. Im in Canada the salt and harsh weather destroys everything. So finding one here would most likely be a bondo filler queen.
