A fifth wheel? Really? Doesn't that seem a bit out of place on a car (truck) like this?


...now you know why....

thats awsome !!!!!!!!
love it

maybe make the trailer a tad less high ?? it kinda looks real big in comparison to the "car"


The trailer is tall enough to stand in, just barely (as it's supposed to double as living quarters at an event) and it's big enough to handle a full-sized showcar or whatever. One reason it looks so tall is that the tow vehicle is so low. There will be character lines that pick up the theme from the tow unit, and that should help to visually diminish the tallness somewhat.

Where did those wheels come from? I'm diggin it B)


The wheels are from the AMT Resto Rods '66 Nova, and one set came from sstacey47, and one set from bartster, to both of whom I will be eternally grateful.

And thanks a LOT to everyone for the enthusiastic response. You guys really made me smile.

Looks great. And it looks like it would be a pain to drive unless you were a giraffe.
