1959 Cheetah “Moon” Transporter – The Journey Begins – Geoffrey Hacker @UndiscoveredClassics


1959 Cheetah “Moon” Transporter

Many of you know that I own the 1959 Moon Transporter.  Actually, it goes by many names:

  • Norm Holtkamp called it the “Cheetah Transporter”
  • Others refer to it as the “Moon Transporter” because Dean Moon owned it and was updating its power and braking
  • Still others (mostly in Europe) call it the “Holtkamp Transporter” because it was designed and built by and for Norm Holtkamp by the legendary Troutman and Barnes metalshapers

I bought it in December, 2006 because it looked cool and I thought it would look great carrying my newly acquired 1961 Porsche Tiburon Coupe.  Rick D’Louhy and I had just reconnected that year and by December, 2006 on Christmas day – the transporter arrived at my house in Tampa, Florida.  But it wasn’t as simple as that to get it, and that’s the fun part of sharing today’s story.
