I once knew someone who towed his Formula Vee race car (and tool box) with his
brand new '80 LE MGB (catalyst removed and EGR disabled). The trailer was a
custom lightweight trailer with two wheels and no brakes. He had no trouble
towing, but needed a new differential after about a year. He used his truck to
tow after that. YMMV
