Hello All
I'm not new to this site, but I finally decided to register. I've been a gearhead ever since I was around 13, (a long long time ago) when i got my first dirt bike.
Not long after that I got my first car, a 50 Ford coupe, and it has been going on ever since, with a break for Uncle Sam, Marraige and kids. Now that I have graduated from all of the young adult stuff, I'm back at it. We have a 23 T Bucket with a 425 Buick Nailhead, 1929 Model A Closed Cab pickup, and a 1961 Ford F100. I am currently doing a major rebuild on the 61 and hope to have it back on the road in the spring or early summer. I built the 29 for my wife and she traded her 56 Chevy 210 for the T Bucket. The 29 is powered by a 351 Windsor with an AOD tranny. The 61 is powered by a 302 with aN AOD tranny. Enough for now, looking forward to 2012.
Bubba :)

Welcome Bubba,

You sure have a lot of nice cars there, a 23 with a nail head, the 29 with a AOD, and where is Sun Valley Nevada?

I googled it, you're just north of Sparks off of 395. You're not too far from me, I'm off of Highway 50 between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. Have some good t-bucket friends in Fallon, Nevada and we get together on numerous occasions during the cruising season. Hope we can hook up. I have a 1923 Track-T powered by a small block Chevy 383 stroker and five speed manual.

Thanks for the reply
Hi Deckofficer; Yep, Sun Valley is right where you said it was. Thanks for comments on our rides. Your Track T is sweet. We used to belong to the Reno T Buckets, but the club went away. We mainly hang out at the A&W on wednesday nights and Summit on Friday nights. We love cruising up to Virginia City when we can. We are somewhat limited as the Missus has M.S. and she can only do so much. Neverless she loves the cars also. Hope to see you sometime since we are nearly neighbors. :D

I'm sure our paths will cross, I do Tahoe, Reno, Carson City, and Fallon. Also I hit nationwide all the T-bucket only events such as the Buckethead Bash in Mountain Home, Arkansas, the end of the season at Fred's Fun Run in SE Arizona the first weekend of November, the 101 Fun Run in the San Diego area. General hot rodding events during cruising season 1st and 3rd Monday at Hog Wild Ribs in Placerville, 1st and 3rd Thursday at Deb's Frosty in Shingle Springs, and the 2nd Saturday at Speed's Diner in Plymouth. The Sierra foothills are alive with the rumble of hot rods.

And of course Yosemite

Coloma, where John Marshall discovered gold.
