I'm guessing that zombies (maybe even toothless) are involved.

Thats correct. I'm going to build my version on the mail truck from the Christmas Special, Santa Claus is coming to town. It was a request from my little girl. Who could say no to that?

I'm looking for ideas for a T build at the moment and after a good googling found some reference pictures of a real tracked T. It seems that the T was turned into just about everything!

Good luck with your build, daughters can be very demanding can't they!

My grand dad told me stories about growing up in northern Maine. he told me they used tracked T's in the logging industry. He also told me they'd put there T in the barn and use it to run a saw mill all winter. Took a tire off, mounted a pulley and ran a belt over to the mill. It's what made them money during the winter..

 

Good luck with your project and yes, little girls know the strings to pull.......

Very cool idea!  Look forward to following this project!  I am working on an ambulance conversion of the same '23 "T" Budweiser van kit.

Hooknladderno1, I saw your post and will also be watching your progress. So far, it looks fantastic. I also went back and read the whole topic on the Circus T. I start the project tonight and will post pics along my way.
