I love it! Killer looking chassis, the tuck & roll interior is sweet and the metallic green and white make a great combo. Stance and proportions are right-on and that Buick mill looks tough as nails! (Get it?)

RRR, you've out done your BAD self once again!! That ol' on-line Switcher's score turned out better than even you expected. Right chop, mill and rake... show quality interior and flaky sparkle on the body-n-block offset the shinny stuff just like an Aaron Kaufman build on Fast & Loud! Richard would be proud of your accomplishment, Brother!!! -KK

I really like this T hot rod. I was not aware of the MPC 27 T kit. I have always wanted to build a 27 T Coupe and have a Jimmy Flintstone chopped Coupe but like the look of a stock height fendered Coupe.

You gotta start on the pickup cab body I sent you from this kit! -RRR

Rodney, that is the first example of this kit that I have ever seen built and it certainly looks way better than the box art.  Your rework on the AMT chassis looks excellent and would help that Jag rear to work properly.  You got the body sitting perfect on that chassis.  Really, really nice!

Cheers

Alan
