Wow, that is impresive. I have never seen this kind of conversion. Great idea. Can you post more pics?

With the it all hooked together it is 36 inches long. the part on the truck is strapped down with a rubber band and you hook the trailer king pin to a metal piece with holes in it. over 100 Popsicle sticks were used to create both wooden parts. and the truck and trailer are still compatible without the auto transporter parts.
