Good companion book for track 27 T manua

April 14, 2014
Bought both the 27 Track manual and this book. Out of the two this one has better pictures and more general text of building a hot rod. If I was building the 27track I would still use the manual and this book together.
Pros:
  • good sources book
Yes, I recommend this product.

Cheap Hot Rod

May 15, 2012
Its a good book to read if your thinking about doiing the Track T roadster. Not much for any other type of Hot Rod. Although it serves the purpose well as what to expect.

Leave out "Cheap"

December 02, 2011
Good quality book that points out in the intro that this is not cheap stuff but it can be affordable. Good quality color pictures and commentary that speaks to the basic points of building a hot rod from a kit. It can provide building insight even if not building the kit.
Pros:
  • Well done
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good reference book

July 27, 2011
I bought this book because I want to build one of the Speedway Track T's and thought this would be a valuable reference. This is a very well written book but honstely I would have preferred the author stayed with the premise of "hey, I'm building a Track-T and this is how I did it" rather than try and make it geared towards a broader audience. In my opinion a lot of pages are wasted giving attention to thought paths and other details not related to the Track T build. While I appreciate the author's desire to educate readers on other paths or options available to them, by including that he can only give them brief discussions and doesn't really give them any direction on where to go beyond the idea that hey - this is possible too if your not going to build one of these. I do enjoy the side stories and they are very informative, but sometimes I feel myself being led away from the advertised purpose of the book. By doing this he dilutes the story of the Track T and isn't really doing anyone a favor as he can't devote enough pages to provide enough coverage of the side topics to do them justice. I guess in that respect, this book is very similar to a magazine in that so many varied topics are covered in one publication. Even so, I still think this book is a must read for anyone considering building the Track T kit as well as anyone who is looking to broaden their understanding of what it takes to take on a restoration or hot rod project. There is a tremendous amount of information packed into this book and I find myself re-reading chapters or sections as each time I do I learn and understand more about the topic. This is definitely a book you could read over and over again. For that reason alone I think this is a must have reference book for anyone interested in hot rodding.
Yes, I recommend this product.

His car was a Speedway Motors Track T without any doors.

Not even, more of a general overview of building rods on the cheap, plus specifics on building the Track T kit.

This book does not cover the door hinges. The car they assemble in the book is one of our Track T's, which did have a functional door. I would look online for some tips and pictures of setting up the door on a T bucket, theres lots of good info there.
