We're not sure if those giving iconic machines such as the ones we have here the garage treatment for the sake of profits have increased in numbers or the social media simply allows it to take better notice of this phenomenon, but one thing's for sure - people locking motoring icons in garages are more annoying than ever.
Well, here's an example of a car collector who demonstrates the other purpose of owning important pages of automotive history.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen drivers, we're looking at a 1929 Bentley Blower being put to towing use. And what a piece of racetrack engineering this Crewe machine has behind it - we're dealing with a Porsche 962 - lens tip to Redditor KPexEA for this image.

Now, as other Redditors have aptly pointed out, the first thing that comes to mind when coming across a Bentley performing such duties is a quote attributed to Ettore Bugatti. The founder of the automaker that battled Bentley at Le Mans back in the day is said to have named the British machines "the world's fastest lorries".

Nevertheless, with the four-wheeled creation being animated by a supercharged 4.4-liter four-cylinder mill, the towing move shouldn't be an issue.

As for the... cargo resting on the trailer behind the Bentley, we're talking about a contraption that deserves a special place in Porsche's trophy cabinet.

The 962 might have been designed back in 1981, entering circuit service in late 1984, but the racecar continued to gather trophies in the hands of privateers for around a decade.

Interestingly, the massive success of the race meant that Porschephilles eventually came up with street-legal incarnations of the 962, so you shouldn't be all that surprised to come across one of these mechanical monsters while attending your local Cars and Coffee event. Meanwhile. we're inviting you to check out each and every inch of this image, as there are tons of details to enjoy.
