Several Ramp Trucks To Compare Different Themes/Teams
I thought putting a few different Ramp Trucks with cars into one thread might provide everyone with an idea of the different looks and themes that can be done, the white Chevrolet trucks are themed with water slide decals, the rest of the trucks are pre themed from ACME. You can make your own unique trucks with the white Chevrolet trucks.
I thought the Ford GT40 MKII cars went best on the white Shelby ramp trucks.
If anyone is looking for a Shelby Ramp Truck I found a dealer that has them which is rare as they are sold out everywhere else and have been for some time.
Thanks for this post, John. I mostly collect 1:24, but have some Exoto 1:18 I'd like to do a ramp truck for and I make my own waterslide decals. Which one do you recommend, and where can I find one?

If you want to theme your own truck I would choose the white Chevrolet, you can get them still from a number of places, if you go onto eBay there are several sellers and they accept PayPal. The water slide decals need the white background unless you print a set of white background decals then overlay the colored decal onto of it, I think that ends up making the decals too thick.
Here is one on eBay:
Just received my second Shelby themed ramp truck and now both GT40 MKII's are on them.
Thanks, John. I'll check it out. I design and print my own decals with a HP Color Laser Jet Pro M254 dw. I swap the black to the white ink cartridge and print the undercoat, then swap back to the black, and print full color. The registration is a little tricky on small decals but I can usually get good results after a few minor adjustments.
Here are the two Chevrolet Racing Ramp Trucks to compare.
Here is another comparison showing the plain white Chevy ramp truck before photo and showing after themed photos.
Did a small update on the Mazmanian Corvette Hauler. I tried to find an Isky Cam decal set but was unable to find one so I added some other decals.
