Album: Custom Hidden Hitch for Retro Bird

When I bought my Retro Bird, I was living in Michigan and spending Winters in Florida. I knew I needed more room to carry "stuff" to Florida and back, so I built a trailer for that purpose and added a hitch to my 2002 T'Bird. I used the U-Haul 24705 hitch, but modified it into a hidden hitch design. I cut the receiver box off the hitch, welded it to a plate, and made it completely removable.
