Hello…….this is one of my new projects on the bench……. Craig Clements "Head Hunter"………Craig is good friends with Steve Scott owner and builder of the "Uncertain T`"………Craig gave me permission to replicate his 1:1 car………he started with a S10 Chevy Blazer and totally modified the chassis ……..Craig stuck a blown small block Chevy into it……..and literally hand made the body with Dominos pizza boxes ,cardboard and bondo and any other stuff he could find…... but,as you can tell it came out pretty sweet…….I will try and do my best on this build……this build will be kinda slow……..because,I am waiting for some TDR 3D printed parts that I should get in a couple of weeks for another build that I am building ……..then I will start that build too…….so I will be going back and forth with the 2 builds……....thanks for looking.

Cool. Reminds me of the Beatnik Bandit except no fenders and bubble top. Might be a good kit to start with, no ?

John, 

Wow, this looks like an awesome project; I'll be watching your build closely!

What can you tell us about the 1:1?  When was it built?  What's that monster engine inside of it?  Was it created based on other customs of the era?

John... I am super excited to see both of these builds come together. They both say.....this is a John Teresi build for sure. I know you will do them justice. I am proud of you brother for venturing out and building two builds at once. You are starting to be like your little brother building a few at once... :D. I can't get over how wild that bike is....lol I hope those TDR parts get to your place soon :)
