OK, here is something different for you guys to laugh at. I built this last fall but it was never posted here so here is something other than a race car for sure. I call this mess a Hoyt Clagwell Model T tractor conversion. In the early years, conversion kits were sold to do just this sort of thing with a farmers T. Sears even sold one.

This is a AMT 1925 T chassis, shortened with a Duesenberg rear axle. Behind the T tranny, there is a auxiliary trans which would give the operator 7 forward speeds and 2 reverse. The floor is made of bass wood and weathered and the cowl is sheet plastic. The overhead fuel tank/hood is also scratched from sheet plastic with two strips of evergreen half-round for trim.

The seat is a cut down plastic coffee spoon and the rear wheels are heavily modified from a lindberg 1/12 scale 1914 Mercedes race car. All the nuts, bolts and rivets are from Grandt Line. The front wheels are stock kit T items with a rib glued around the center. Laugh all you want, I laughed the whole time I was building this.
Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
I never TRY to hit another car. But when I do I make sure its a Prius.

Here is the mate to the Clagwell T tractor. 1923 T Farm Truck. This was built from the remains of a AMT 1923 delivery van. I used the chassis, engine, hood and radiator with wheels from an early AMT 25 T double kit. The firewall, bed and seat mount and seat back is made from bass wood. The seat is the 23 T kit item and the supports for the seat back is paper clips with one end hammered flat. The bucket, barrels, seed sacks and dog are from Tamiya 1/35 scale military kits. The fuel tank under the seat is an X-acto blade container cut down to fit. The truck was weathered with Rust-All and artist pastels. The tool box is made from some super thin wood and Carpet thread was used for the rope handle. I had fun building these and have more projects in boxes. Maybe I will get around to finishing them this winter.

I'll be the first to admit my biased, narrow mindness when it comes to builds that appeal to me...these builds where worth a second and third look and I must say they are simply unique and great....the scratch building alone is worthy of praise.
