Very interesting picture!! looks like the one of the cars is levitating off the ground. The more I look at this picture the more oddities I notice.
Is the other car used as a crane to hold it off the ground? I looks like the cables are hooked into the top irons of the car?? It also looks like the crane care has two steering wheels or is that a reflection?
Also the rear wheels of the crane car has extra spokes. looks like a dead coyote hanging off the back of the levitated car.

Randy,

The extra Steering wheel is a reflection in the windshield of the tow car.
This isn't just a tow truck/car but a pick up. T's are so lite that I doubt you could do this trick with other larger cars of the day.

Great photo.
Larry
