    Must be that Corvette SUV we've heard so much about.

      That is just wrong .... especially with all the surface rust!

        Silliest thing I have seen since first seeing motorcycles pulling trailers. This must be for the Corvette owner who needs to transport more than two golf bags.

          A fellow who autocrosses a C7 locally built a small trailer to haul his wheels with Hoosiers and a few tools to events. It's pretty common to see such trailers pulled by cars you wouldn't expect, like Miatas.

            I think it's so cool when guys have a small trailer on a sports car to a track. Bring track wheels, slicks/track tires, jack, some high torque electric tools (and batteries of course). Have fun at the track, save your street tires and wheels, load 'er up, and take her home!

                Probably a real-world exhaust emissions analyzer rig.

                  Funny, that this shows up now, I was just thinking yesterday with all of the suspension advancements, horsepower, torque, braking and other advancements, you would think that these cars could do a better job of towing a trailer than the original cars could. My point being back in the late fifties you always saw the cars towing the trailers because they were better geared for highway travel than the pickups were. today that seldom happens. but back in the late fifties, it was very common, horsepower, torque, suspension and brakes were a far cry from today's technology. Final comment I'm surprised they did not wrap the hitch in camou that would have really freaked some of us out.

                    Good to know in case I can't afford to keep my Silverado. LOL

                      The likely reason that this hitch is in raw steel and has surface rust is because it is a work in progress hitch. You cannot weld on painted steel. The welder who made this hitch left it in raw steel so that as he modified it he did not have to grind off the paint first before he laid down his weld beads. I wish I had the metal bending machine they used to make this complicated hitch with.
