So do the tech have to be pre 37 or is that just the car?

I've been gathering parts to make a 23 T. Last time I was working on it, I stuck the incomplete vehicle and all its parts on ebay, so I have to start from scratch.

I'm in, I'll be working on a 32 roadster (rolling bones style), and 27 T roadster (1960's show car style) for my entries.

Gettin a amt model T kit

That's what I'm starting with too. I have the one that is a twin pack with the coupe.
My first model T was a Revell one and that kit was not fun!
My second (incomplete) one was the AMT variant with the barrel at the back, also a twin pack. This coupe twin pack is just another variation on the same kit.

Hey guys, Here's my contribution, Rolling bones style 3 window, pinched frame rails, mild channel, 6" scale chop. I'm really excited about this build! It will need a hood stretch, and Probably a Hilborn injected SBC, with ram horns.
