Hello, I am doing a "killer klowns from outer space" theme this year and want to build a clown
car. Has anyone done this before? Can some one out there help me?

Thanks! CJ

I have seen that before and have made my own cars like that. But I am talking bigger
and closer to a real car. Come on guys!

I just have to say here..Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Awesome movie lol. But seriously I think I have some things that might help. Google plans for a home made teardrop trailer. Using that as a starting place you can modify the basic plans to make a clown car. I think something like a Volkswagon Beetle would be cool, but a bunch of creepy clowns in a HEARSE. That would be something! Maybe try a platform of plywood on free axles to start, then a frame of bent strips of ply or very small diameter plastic pipe. Then skin it with more ply or something else thin and bendable.

I began working on my little car a few years ago, then i put it on display here and have not got back to work on it,but it has possibilities.
I had a small, steel body from a 1950's Kid's riding toy car,which looks like a Plymouth with quad-headlights.
I removed the body from the original pressed steel chassis and used some thick steel parts to make it's frame.
I also used a grinder to cut out steering parts . I bought some small inflatable tires on wheels at an antique mall for my "Car".
Then after marrying the new steel frame to the steel car riding toy steel body , I began the roof ,bending one inch steel electrical conduit for the roof frame. It's going to be a "Mini-Hearse".
Yes, it's un-finished but I put an explanatory sign on it saying "Waiting for Bail-out money" (Just like GM! did.)
