Zack,

You are going to have a lot of fun with that ride, the power to weight ratio is just plain addicting. I hope you are documenting your build on more than one T site. The site of your link has a habit of almost closing the doors when not enough donations come in for the month.

BTW, welcome to the best general hot rod site on the entire web. Not only are the members really good folks (as is the case for all automotive sites), but more importantly, the mods and administrators of this site are great folks.

Bob

Zack,

Have you had or driven a T-bucket before? A new T-bucket site that is geared to the builders is this one....
http://bucketbuilder.bb3host.com/index.php

Most members of the above site built or are building their rides.

Most the members on this site....
http://tbuckets.lefora.com/

Have T-buckets that are dialed in and being enjoyed like crazy. Full event coverage of all major "T-only" gatherings, lots of pictures and videos of the Bucket Head Bash in Mountain Home, Arkansas, 101 Fun Run in the San Diego area, and of course the end of the cruising season's Fred's Fun Run in SE Arizona. Do you think making any of these events are in your future, Zack?

Bob

all true. and I can see why you would say that, as the mods here are some of the few who haven't banned you yet for self promotion.

I would probably only be able to make the events in LA and Texas. It would really depend on my wife's work schedule. I have a couple young kids at home and my wife typically works most weekends.

Sounds like I might get to meet you next year at the 101 Fun Run, and if Texas is doable, then Fred's in SE Arizona is a possibility. Good luck with the build, sounds like you have experience with t-buckets.

I hope we can meet. Between dad and myself we have a fair amount of experience with hot rods. Only one T but so far we are moving along pretty good. We've had a couple problems but we eventually solved the problem, LOL. Thanks again Bob. I will keep the pics coming as things come together.

I hear ya. I had a buddy who ran the 33x21.50's on a pro street truck. He got caught in the rain and before he could stop he almost lost it and crashed. I don't plan any trips if there is even a slight chance of rain.
