It's a very flexible design that has at least 12 variants that I know of . It's Low Tech but it works. Here's where to find it.

Barina, AKA: the mighty Geo Metro. Look out for the one in Seattle with grafitti on the back hatch that says "Yeah, I'm driving a Metro... what are you compensating for?"

BTW, if a guy has a 30 ton press, what the hell will he need fat chicks for?

Also, I bought a real cheap dolly, swapped out the pneumatic tires for solid, welded on a chain to retain bottles, a hook for goggles, and added a tube to hold welding rod... DIY welding cart. Sorry, no pics; it's in storage twenty miles away.
