This is what I use. Seems to work for me.
Alright, maybe not the left nut...how bout a left lug nut? Here is a very preliminary drawing, like I said no computers, except how did I post this? Hum! Anyway, Very raw drawing, will post more as the work takes shape!
This a 36' Ford Hauler w/ my 40' pickup on back. My pickup is dubed "Phat Rat"...More to follow...
I see a whole new line of those silly moving models.
This is cool!
Does the art have to be hand drawn or we are allowed to rework a vehichle from the computer if so, I don't have photo shop but I was wondering if I can use the PAINT program for this.
Nate said photo-hackery is allowed if you want to try it out! I use MS Paint myself...you can do some cool stuff with it if you take your time!!
Ok then this is my contribution to this challenge. I have a pic of the one I Photo Chopped with MS PAint. I hope you guys like I think it would be a great transport vehichle.
my 51 will look like this, chopping it over xmas, mid engined ramp truck to go with my chopped chevy tow truck.
I didn't read that we haduntil the 7 of Dec. Shit!!!! Can I hand draw the same concept
Hi Ron, welcome to the HAMB! Glad to see you finally found your way to the best site on the web.
By the bye, is that your old COE that was consumed by the fire? If so, very sad.
Anyway, glad to see you here.

Here ya go:
very cool and welcome meth!
Those bikes are bad ass! Are they your own designs?
Here's my left nut...and a right hand crescent wrench to go with!
Hack, I could see doing this to a late forties/early fifties Dodge/Chrylser coupe. They have that long ass trunk that looks so weird.
So, I haven't gotten to draw the car that should be transported just yet, but I wanted to get this in before the end this time.
I am thinking one of those late 50's early 60's buses, either a GM or Western Flyer type, with the end chopped out and an extra axle added to stregthen the rear end and its carrying capacity.
Sort of a European auto carrier with American bits.
I'll work on the car part.... and hopefully get it in before this one is done.
Just a quicky, to keep the thread alive! ...Fresh off the press! ...Race day or a car show always gets ya going!
Title: Strappin down for race day!
When are we going to see more?
Just a Newbie...but...What the Hell does "Bump" mean?
whenever someone makes a comment, the subject bumps back to the top. So if someone just wants to help keep it in view in the first few pages, they do a 'bump' or put bttt in the comment. bttt means 'back to the top'.
I dont know...bump... what you are ...bump... talking about. I dont ...bump... hear any...bump...thing.
you guys are bumpin crazy.
I'm working on mine, I think others are too..
I have no idea why you think it must be a truck-based vehicle, nor so damn high...
These are FWD, and that opens the rear up for a very low bed, easier loading. And you can take all your friends.
Okay, here's ANOTHER one for ya! I call this Kenworth-based hauler "Max" after the dorky red robot in the movie "The Black Hole", because that's what I had on the TV while I was drawing it today!! Ha Ha...what a HORRIBLE movie...but I think the rig turned out okay!
It kinda plays on that Yuppie "One-Upmanship" thing that was going on before gas prices took off...the whole "I gotta have a BIGGER Yuppie Truck than YOUR Yuppie Truck" mentality that lead to the ridiculous "Super Crewzer" and the like! (Trucks that gave mindless weenies the means to block your street for twenty minutes while they try to back their simple boat trailers into the yard!) Ha Ha...anyhow...this rig pulls no punches...it doesn't PRETEND to be a big rig cuz it IS a Big Rig!! Just stretched and equipped with a flatbed in place of the fifth wheel...and an adequate sleeper to accomodate a driver and a buddy on a cross-country project-fetching trek or a weekend at the lakes, strip or other races! I gave it a 70s era paint job to go with it's vintage and tossed a lakes-inspired roadster on the spacious deck for this rendering. As the famous mudflaps of the 70s used to say..."Keep On Truckin'"!!!!
I also did this one today, although I'm not real thrilled with it. Just another means of hauling a racing kart to and from the track with a dash of style and panache! A 55 panel with a heavily huffed 348 mill rippin' up the pavement with it's oversized rear rubber!!
Hey! Who says the "transporter" has to be strictly a GROUND vehicle?! Ha Ha...with THIS baby, you can drop into your favorite event complete with your ride, tool box and and all without having to worry about traffic jams or overheating in line at the gate!! (Plus...if you're REAL good, you might just nab a primo spot right next to the beer tent...uhh, or on TOP of it?!)
You're having a blast with this arn't ya Hack...!!!... Keep it up...
I think Hack should win on exuberance alone!
What do you charge to pick up and drop off at the the car show?
Love the "Heli-porter" Idea!
Ha Ha...a case of beer oughtta do it!!!
Thanks...just having soem fun with this one!!!
Years ago I had visions of a COE-Ranchero. Chip Foose sketched it out for me. The older I get though, the less I want to take on the challenge. My tastes have changed over the years & now I lean more toward a stock body on an updated chassis.
I'd still love to see this truck built... I won't be the one to do it though.
