Need some help locating...
Author: hartrick24

  I guess it's a type of ramp you would see at a car dealership. I think for only new cars that would be driven up the ramp so a buyer could see the under side of the car.

    TIA

I have never seen a ramp like that at a car dealership. They eat up a huge amount of room which most car dealerships don't have enough of.
Which is why they use hoists.

How many new-car buyers look at the undercarriage, for that matter? A used car or one suspected of needing repair might warrant such an inspection, but not a new one.

Steve are you thinking about the kind used for a lube lift or the kind that displays new cars?

Paul, it would be for a new car. At my Mobil refinery main office, I'd like one to have a 1/87 scale racecar with Mobil markings on it. My 14'x 31' layout should have the room.

COLORADO dealerships have a lot of these. Showing off 4x4s.
Never seen one for models.Would be easy enough to make one out of styrene. Most are square tube construction.

I plugged ...
Auto display ramp
into the Shapeways search bar and got a whole bunch of them. In Various Scales
shapeways.com  
is a great place to find the odd stuff the big manufacturers don't make.
I found an  early Ford Bronco (1st car) 3 wheeled Honda ATVs, and under car augers,
all on their site. Just need those Ortner extensions (LOL)

 They do have them TP, just not in Toledo. So I guess you are wrong...
