Side Profiles?

Anything to do with mechanical, construction etc

Postby sunny16 » Fri Apr 07, 2006 2:08 pm

Here is my trailer profile. A bit different but it will have the rear hatch just like all the others (that have them, anyway.) I wanted more room for rear cabients so I went with a more "modern" design". I call it the "Un-Tear" 8)

I cut it three times and it's still too short!!

I don't want to be thought a total pedant, but I think you'll find that car name should be spelt Baccaruda - I know, 'cos I've heard the song.

Ask any Dymouth Plealer, they'll tell you.

Mine had the automatic on the floor and a puny slant 6 225, but it ran forever never gave me any problem. Now my Dad had a 58 Dodge Dart with a v8, can't remember the size motor it had but it really had a lot zoom to it. It seemed like every week I was connecting the muffler back together, all ways blew it off evertime you hit the passing gear!! :twisted:

(One of the few things I can usually rely on here is that there's generally enough guys as old or older than me who remember what I'm talking about..... :cry: )

No, but I know someone who is building one from a '57 Chevy. He's been over three years on
it and may have it down at Sweetwater. The last pictures I saw of it, it was looking real good.


This is the guy that is building it.

Have a good day.
:thinking:
Oh, and he plans on pulling it behind a '57 Chevy that he has (show quality).

Gage, I was kiddin' about the Barracuda shape. I though the fish had hijacked the thread. Nothining wrong with fish or wheels, but the side profiles became a secondary issue. BTW, isn't there a fish shaped teardrop somewhere?? :thinking:

P.s. The woody in your post is awsome. :thumbsup: :applause:

Yep, I see what your talking about. But you ot to see the 'Chevy Tear' that Cliff is building. It's from the front windshield back and looks right.

Have a good day.

Cool!! The PT Cruiser tail lights are a great idea. (If they are PT tailights).

I was considering using them on my Kit fenders, but I never did it. The fenders are part of the molded shape I presume. :thinking:

Nice profile- kind of a "Benskill" or "Skillroy" or similar.. :thumbsup:

I'm using Mike/Andrew's Ultralight profile.

I built the floor pan a full 96" long, for a design with square lower corners, then I saw the Ultralight profile and I was hooked.

Thanks Mike and Andrew.
