    What can you attach to your tacoma to tow a regular sized car? I don't mean, to put the car on some sort of trailer, but rather something you can strap the car to, that attaches to the hitch on the back.

    Has anyone on TW tried to tow a car?

    I think it would actually be something you would attach to the car you will be pulling. Then it would just attach to your hitch. Many people do this with RV's.
