View Full Version : Insane request

06-17-2010, 01:21 AM
Hello everyone, until today, I never knew there was a forum dedicated to bring people's concepts into a visual reality. I'm glad I found this forum because I've had this idea in my head for a while and just can't seem to get it out of there.
Hopefully you guys can help me out.
I have this van that is great for towing your vehicle to the race track, but lately I've been thinking, "what if I could make this vehicle double duty", tow my car to the track with the van and once I'm done with the car, jump in the van and hit the track with it, can you imagine the look in people's faces:eek:???

First, The van I got is a Ford E350 clubwagon XLT, and let me tell you, it's huge.
I would like to lower it as much as possible, I would like to delete the back two windows on each side of the van, I would like some deep dish flat black wheels with black polished lips, no huge rims, something small to put some beefy tires on them, 15" to 17" should be more than enough.
Some sort of body kit would be nice but not necessary, although some side skirts with side exhausts poking through them would look awesome.
Ideally the van itself would be all black, although if you guys think other color would look better, I would love to see it, absolutely 0(zero) chrome.

So what do you guys think???? pretty crazy right???? lately this is all I can think about. This van pulling a black 37' enclosed trailer with matching wheels.

Some of the vans that put these evil thoughts on my head:

Just to give you guys an idea of the color for the wheels:

Flat black with gloss black lips



It doesn't have to be any of these wheels, it can be any wheel as long as the color is like the ones above.

ok....im gonna say what others have said before. THIS IS NOT PHOTOSHOP-ON-DEMAND. I dont know if thats what you think it is or not, but this forum is really for you to make that car yourself. I doubt anyone is going to attempt to do this. First, try it yourself. If you dont have photoshop, theres Gimp. If you REALLY cant get it to look the way you want, THATS when you post on here. I dont mean to be rude, but come on!!

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I hear what you're saying, but in all honesty, if I had the skills to do the car myself, why would I ask anyone for help??????
If I knew how to photoshop as good as you guys, I would be doing this for a living.

I just put the request out there to see if any one is interested in giving it a shot, if some one does, then great, I would be very thankful, if no one cares to help out, then that's fine also, no harm done.

I like the idea. BTW welcome to PSC! What sort of car do you have? Could you maybe post some pics?

Thanks man, it is a pretty crazy idea, but the way I picture it in my head is just outrageous. What do yo mean ???? the car I want chopped, or the other cars???

The car I would like to have chopped is a Ford E350 Clubwagon, its a 15 passenger van, it's huge and I love it. Is the exact same van as the one on post #3, the white van.

I also own a Dodge Durango and a Mazda Rx8, and I'm currently working on my project car, a 1979 Mazda Rx7, I love rotaries.

Here's a pic of the Durango hauling the Rx8:

And one of the Rx8:

More on my Flickr if anyone is interested:

I like your cars bro! I'm assuming that RX 8 isn't completely stock right?

06-18-2010, 05:44 PM
Thanks man, the Rx8 has a few goodies, mostly suspension work.

I was talking about the track car, that is pretty sweet.

I had a go at your truck, I went for a flat black as that seems to be the trend at the moment. It is just a Quik one..

That's F*ing awesome:clap2:, you even put my car in the trailer, you rock.:rockon:

Could you please tell me how you changed the van's color to black, I've been trying to do this pic, but everytime I get close to black I start losing detail on the van.

Alright guys, finally got a free day, no work, no wife, no kids, so I gave it a try. I've been working on it and got this so far. Overall, I'm pleased with it but there are a few things I need help with, first I would like to extend the original body flares outward so that the van looks as if it had a wider stance, I did the front but it doesn't have depth(it just doesn't look wider).
Second, I would like to add an enclosed trailer behind it, a 30' t0 35' trailer, the van is about 20' so the trailer would be about 1 the length of the van, I found 1 around that long but I just can't seem to get the angle right, any help would be much appreciated.
