Business card truck prototype

Design is derived from a few online photos, to wit: This 1950 Handcrafted Belgium truck. See below.

I made a few additions and subtraction to become a business card holder. On the next ones, I will add a company name on the side. I left the back open so you can get the card out easily.

It is supposed to have a distressed look. I think I got that. It has a satin finish. Overall length is 7 1/4 height is 3 1/4 and width is 3 1/4 wheel to wheel.

Does anyone have suggestions, or is production of 9 trucks a go?

Seems big for a business card holder Ken, but like the design.

The business card is 3.5×2. The bed of the dump is 3 3/8×1.75. The rest of the truck is so you can drive over pens and paper clips with ease.

Your work reminded me of the history of the business. In fact, the concept of business has appeared very recently. But the activity itself is already hundreds of years old. Such tracks were the main tool in the transport trade. For example, in the essay https://samploon.com/free-essays/business/ about the history of business in England in the late forties, it is written that this truck model was the most popular in those years on the entire continent.

I would love to read it, but the link doesn’t take me to the specific essay and I get zero results when I search it.
