I had some tracks from a Rommell's Rod kit, and a resin '41 Plymouth inline six, an engine which was used in quite a few farm and industrial applications. An overactive imagination and close proximity of said parts led to this...

WOW, that looks great, Chuck, and clearly an original addition to your collection. I haven't seen too many vehicles like it on the tables. Congrats.
