This is close to the final version of the 1930 Rat Rod and 1955 Blunt Nose Carrier. I am now working on the plan set patterns with a hopeful launch in early December.

This is a top view of the Blunt Nose Hauler with the Rat Rod placed in the exact middle of the bed. Someone asked that we make the bed wider and this is a shot of the modified bed. It will have plenty of clearance on each side now. Thanks for the heads up!

Darn nice, what size wheels did you design for the truck John? If you went with 1 1/2" treaded I'm good to go--

The wheels for the truck are all 1-1/2". The front wheels shown on the Rat Rod are 1-1/4" and the rear wheels are 1-1/2". The Rat Rod also looks great with all four wheels at 1-1/2". I am hard at it working on the plan set and it will be the next new product. We hope to launch it around the first week in December. This shot is of the final pieces of the plan set.

I finished the painted versions of the Blunt Nose Truck and Rat Rod today. These shots are of the finals for the plans manuscript.

On the un- proofed rat rod plan on part #11 which is the base of the car what would the 2 round holes be for( not the axle holes)? Thanks---

My guess would be for the hook to winch the car up the ramp.

The two big round holes in the chassis are for the pull bar on the Blunt Nose Carrier. The bar has a vertical dowel on it that the Rat Rod rests on when it is pulled up the ramp. You can see it in the image below.
