Wild truck here, David - is it for the strip or for the road? Anyway, equally impressive load on the trailer...

@1959scudetto

The cab and trailer both have air ride suspension built into the 2 chassis.

 Mainly built for salt flat runs with those 2 supercharged and turbo charged Allison's behind the cab,

but I built it to be a drag truck, or for show also, or something to have fun with on the street when the air bags are filled.

Nothing but my crazy imagination run amok. :lol:Sometimes I don't know when to stop a project, and this one sorta got otta hand 😵.

Forgive me, if it's a bit too much.

The main color is called "Southern Bell yellow pearl." How do you pass up a name like that??

This is a fantastic set-up! The whole yellow theme throughput is perfect! The custom work looks flawless, too!

Thanks @Bucky

Been a "putty thrower" since I was a little kid.

Love customizing and doing body work with different fillers for a long time.

Some things ya just gotta do. Love it.

This took me a year to build. Sometimes when I start a project with no direction, it gets out of control. But in this case that was OK.

I'll post a few construction pics, but I won't bore you with too many.

This is just too much eye candy for these old tired eyes to comprehend. Awesome build from the front bumper to the trailer taillights and everything in between.  You sir have an out of control imagination and I like it.

What an amazing build!!!  There is almost too much to take in but it all flows and ties in together so nicely.  I envy guys like you that have such a creative touch.  I just don't have that.  And then to execute the vision in your mind's eye......wow!

A few more construx pics.

In some of the last pics, I machined an axle for the Car Hauler, and also machined 2 V-shaped wheel connectors that were pinned to each side of the axle, but could be free to move, as the trailer went over uneven roads, and other obstacles.
