International shorty

Found another International with a Wayne body in the woods. Just had to take it home. Engine was stuck solid, and had other plans for this little one. 6v53 Detroit now fills the engine bay, and axles from a 99 short bus with air brakes are what it rides on now. Just got the air brakes working today, and took it for a short test drive. Compared to my Thomas it is a sports car. Lots of fun to drive.
