1961 Norman Holtkamp's Cheetah High-Speed Transporter

Often referred to as the “Moon Transporter,” this El Camino–faced custom hauler started as the “Cheetah Transporter” and was initially built by Norman Holtkamp. The latter was inspired by the Uhlenhaut Mercedes transporter used by the Benz racing team in the early ’50s. Dean Moon bought the Cheetah from Holtkamp, which still exists today, in the care of automotive historian Geoff Hacker.
