Another 1/32 scale Model T Ford scratchbuilt racer with two engines no less!!

Browsing the Internet, I came across this Model 'T' racer with two engines:

As I had a whole bunch of parts left from previous Model 'T' builds I thought I'd give it a try.

Here's the finished model:

Another great looking build Tony. This is very cool! I guess they didn't require "wheelie bars" and "chutes" back then!

Thanks guys.

Mark... believe it or not.... this was actually an oval dirt track racer! Man, what an unstable monster to manhandle on the dirt!

Terry......I just created a Union for myself. Now I just work to rule!

Guts ? I think they were crazy !!! Just think they had to drive , worry about falling out , Spark Advance for two engines,poor braking for a race car and other cars on the track.
This car is awesome and 1/32 scale also .
