Custom Hauler

Posted (edited) · Report post

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...

This is a spectacular idea and great way to execute it....I have quite a few of these race trailers lying around and have been wondering what to do with them....You've done some awesome work on this and WHAT AN IDEA.. :o:o:o ..This is Great!!!! And this thing is looking Great...Now, that's creative thinking....Outside the box....I'm all over this one..I hope you don't mind if I use some of your idea on my next race rig... :D ..Can't wait to see more....What rig you thinking of using????

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.
