Think the Hauler material was out of an old Chevy, IIRC? Next time I'm in the shed I will try and remember to take some pics of it if anyone is interested. Was going to give it to my son for working on his 64 Malibu SS, but he picked up one of those Craftman's with the pneumatic cylinder... too wobbly for me and mostly plastic but the wheels are good.Great idea for the cover that older stuff really does hold up better. I will see what i can track down. Your hemi hauler sounds really cool, you should share it if you get a chance. I think people today rely to much on just buying new when the old breaks. We are slowly losing our ingenuity one generation at a time. Sharing older ideas and designs seems like a good way to reverse that.
I'm with you on the loss of making do with things at hand, ingenuity and building things to last or repairing things...that's what is so great about this forum, IMHO!! The Hemi-Hauler is 40+ years old now and probably has 10k miles on it and took an afternoon to build it from stuff laying around. Think your creeper will be around for a while too, but may be a bit too comfortable to use for any length of time.
Jere that looks so comfortable id fall asleep under there....:O)I hear you both! It's also a long way back up...might have to lay there and think about it, resting my eyes of course...for a minute. ~PJHa i did find myself starting to doze off after an extra long day already.
