    34 ford tow truck
    first build of getting back into it and first build on here. I just started brain storming and decieded to cut the rear fenders and the frame after the rear cross member/axle support. I cut the front fender hole and plan to make a spot for a tool box instead of spare tire.. I dont really like the hand crank on boom so want to make gear driven assembly but not sure how it would be driven?? open to comments or other ideas. THANKS

    That was my original plan to make it be able to tow more than just a lawn mower.

    Just getting back into building and introduced hobby to cousin
    I just recently started watching this forum and just getting back to building from when i was 16. now only early twentys i ask my cousin age 13 if he likes them and he didtnt know so asked if he wanted to build one with me and he said yes that might be fun, so i took him to get one tonight and we started it together with me explaining and him doing. he had some great comments like... this is awesome.... a good challenge.... and when can we work on it again. it was a cool time to be able to hopefully pass the hobby on. just wanted to share, THANKS
