Thanks for putting them up,Steve! Right now I'm building a 7 car carrier to put with it. I think it's about 3/4 done. I'll send pics when it is. BTW,this will be a scratch built trailer.

I've added alot since these pics. The trailer will hold die cast cars now,without sagging in the middle. I also cut the top back deck in half so I can get the cars on better. I am just building this off the top of my head. I also found some plastic banding with a diamond type pattern to use on the treads. I think I will paint it silver.

BTW the Calypso Coral Boss'9 took a swan dive off the bench,and is now in 200 pieces. I needed a parts car anyway.

Next assignment for you, Mike, is to make one in 1:1 scale so we can take a shopping trip out west.

Thanks Sam! Steve,I don't think a plastic trailer will hold 7 Mustangs.
