Default 1/5 scale friendly car stand

Anyone know of a work stand that can take a 1/5 scale w/ adjustable height? I mean, I could make one easily but I was just wondering if there was a cheap premade one.

Some here on the forum use keyboard stands like below. You can get a stand like this for $30.

You could use a restaurant platter serving tray leg stand also which is similar to the keyboard one, but usualy has straps that attach to the top rails to keep it from over spreading.

At home, I use a SUPS Priority 8x8x8 mail box under my truck. Works good

yes the bottom is 12 inches wide and the top side is 9 inches wide .. gives a firm and stable base also you can work on everything while its on the stand , no need too flip it

Right now I have my Baja on a storage box similar to the one in the upper right of your picture :P

I have a really nice mini turntable, but thats no good for anything over 1/10 scale.
