I am a new twister (about a years experience) and I MOSTLY do line work.  Every once in awhile I get a request for a car or truck.  Do you have any single or double balloon basic designs for a car or truck?

Here is a photo of a simple one balloon car. Not as nice as Michael's but pretty easy.

I hate the car requests, since the only design I new for a while required making 4 seperate tires by breaking off and tying a black 260 each time. I've started using a drag race car design I picked up. Depending on how to do it, it can be 2 balloons (321 and a 260, breaking a few times) or a 321, two 260 scraps, and two 5" rounds.

-Inflate a 321 bee body to nearly the "stinger" tip. We will be making one twist and one pinch twist and want it the tip fully stretched by the end.
-Split a black 5" round and twist into the 321 about 3" from the nozzle for the back wheels.
-4-5" from those wheels, make a small pinch twist in the 321. Split another 5" round and attach here.
-From the 260 scrap, make a pinch twist, 2" bubble, pinch, 2", pinch. attach middle to the nozzle as the spoiler.
-Squeeze front to make sure air fully inflates tip.
-Attach a section clear 260 scrap between the wheels as windshield.

There ya go, a very quick car!
