Default Who wants a dually?

Just burning a little time here at the end of my day at work. I've used Photoshop for years, but work is cheap and I have to use GIMP for any editing I need to do. So I've had this idea in my head for a while. It's a shame I don;t have any high res pictures of that PT Cruiser truck that fellow built, I'd like to do a mock up of this with that PT. It's a quick and dirty edit, but what do you think? Impractical but cool?

Cool concept, But is it was that wide I'd have some Cragar Dragite 14" wide rims and some nice street drag radials on her.

I've thought about that, but until/unless you converted to rear wheel drive, it would seem a little weird to me. Duallys are real wheel drive, but it's as much to do with carrying weight. I've already got some ideas about stealing a rear axle from one of those small Toyota commercial trucks.

I've been enjoying my dually PT for some time now.

However, mine is a little more blurry and pixelated than the OP's.

The biggest way to deflate a dually owners ego is to ask why his truck still has his training wheels on

Your just jealous because your fake PT only has 4 wheels.

I don't think anybody has a dually for looks...
A phony dually reminds me of the old fad of fake convertible tops - I never got that, either - nobody likes the looks of a convertible, the whole reason it exists is to be able to put the top down, so a phony convertible is the worst combination.
Same with a phony dually - Like a woman with saddle bags....

I pull a trailer and haul with my PT, so even if they aren't the drive wheels, they should support a load better. So would they technically be fake? I could start dragging around 2 caskets instead of one...?
Oh, and are you referring to vinyl/canvas tops, or those carson top things?
