Been in a builder's block for a while now, thought  I'd try something other than short track cars lol..

 

Started out as a Ferrari team hauler. I cut out the back sides and added a tilt upper deck ,rounded off the front & lower

 

front wheel area for a more older style look.. Here is what I got so far...

That looks pretty awesome....I really like the decals and subtle weathering.....This was the inspiration prompting me to build my 378 car hauler....You really gave me some good ideas....What tractor you planning to use...???

This is VERY cool.  Just a thought....the little Dodge or Ford cabovers made into a tandem rig.....since you are hauling "gassers".

 

  I think the curved cutouts really make this thing.  Very old school......when styling still mattered and was built in instead of added on.

 

Will be interested to see what you decide on.
