Are you kidding? In a word, NO. Another thing that bothers me is it says it will twirl a complete 1960s muscle car, frame and all and it says it has a capacity of 3,000 pounds. Did you ever see a 1960s muscle car that did not weigh more than that? To put it mildly, I have reservations about it. JB

My uncle has a 1966 GTO and with all running gear and stuff off the car he used the same one as this it is built very solid. he never had a prob with it and IMHO only.......... who wants to a roto job with the frame still attached anyways i think they are just giving that option if it need be

Actually I do. I am pretty much disabled and what I would like to do is flip my 78 elky high enough on its side where I can sandblast the frame and suspention before I weld up the weak rusty places in the frame and paint it. I did not want it turned up so far that the fluids in the car would be effected by raising it. I figure at about a 60 degree angle would work. I am too old to jack that thing up and put it on jackstands to do that. I am unable to get up off the floor without grabbing something and pulling myself up. JB

4,000 pounds sounds good. My 78 Elky only weighs about 3700 pounds, but thats just guessing. If I run across any extra money I might rtemove the front clip for a fiberglass replacement. Better safe than sorry on the weight. I will probably be rebuilding or switching motors. The motor is a 350 with about 30,000 miles on a rebuild. JB

I tried to hunt up the 4,000 pound model you mention and could not find it. There was a review of the above model and it recieved a very poor rating because it was deemed too flimsy. JB
