AMTs '25 T kits are a great source of bits for any hot rod builder. After the T5000 & 25 T I looked in the box at the bits that were left & saw this thing (in bits of course) Everything I have ever done was low & wide so this was a real laugh to do.
Thanks for looking, finished posting for now, going back to building.

Very cool, nothing wrong with a build to have fun and blow off steam. ( no pun intended, although i know this isn't old enough for steam-engine lol)

Nice work Brian. I am always amazed at what you can build from a bag of spare bits.
