After 5 years of searching, I finally purchased the one kit I really wanted.

The AMT Turnpiker Peterbilt Custom Cabover. I got it for $88.00 dollars on Evilbay.

I have too! The box wasn't sealed, but the parts inside were. I've already started building it. It has a supercharged Detroit, and a ton of custom parts. I'm thinking of stretching the frame on it.

 

Enjoy yours! You got lucky!

I've seen several Can Do kits on Evilbay lately, but they are expensive... I wish you good luck in your quest...
