theres a chap on VOC UK forums who has done a few over the years now, i'll try and find you a photo



best one i can find, he's making another one now as that one was rushed a bit for a holiday or something, the above photo being taken in italy i believe, and as you can see the paints a bit flat as a result of no lacquer, but apparently it worked pretty well.

theres a chap on retrorides from germany doing a pretty good job of a similar saloon based trailer too.

Default Volvo trailer on matching alloys

[QUOTE=Vomaz;7972]I got bored now in X-mas and had a donor car

Damn! I love it. I always liked such things but 95% of them look boxy/cheap/strange/ugly, looking at the front of the trailer. Yours make it somewhat much nicer with those seats still functioning and a `fully sealed` trunk.
are these legal? must register? how is insurance done?
Keep posting!

This is gonna be legal, I need a working trailer and remove tha axel and hitch and mont the rear end on top and it still a trailer but looks like a car.. then i dont need to show it to the police before reg it..

so if you use a good working trailer you can built anything you want
there are som criteries that i need as a triangel reflektplate in the rear, and weight must not be overloaded..

Default Is it street-legal in the US?

Obviously it looks best when completely level with car, painted same color, 6 matching wheels all around.

I have unfortunately not had time to make the car / trailer completely finished, as I have plenty of other projects that take up time ... :/
