This is the 1st in a series I will be posting each Sunday for the next 3 weeks...
EDIT: 3/31/19 Changed how the engine indexes to the body so the parts are interchangeable.
Digging through a box in the attic I found several old toy cars. Some were old wooden trucks with their profile cut from a 2x4. The type with round wood wheels, glued to a dowel rod axle. Others were vintage Tootsie metal cars. Each very simple and I started thinking about creating something similar in Tinkercad.
My concept is a 1 piece body, with enough detail to look like a vintage car. The engine and wheels can be swapped to any body... I plan to create 4. The truck you see... A coupe, a sedan and finally a roadster. Overall, they will measure approx. 5.5 x 3". Perfect to sit on your desk to mix and match when you get bored with one style.

Created the main shape with Tinkercad's "scribble" shape for the basic profile....
