No I live right off of I 40 where you go to Pigeon Forge. I have a t Bucket for sale. I can't post a pic on here but if you will email me I will send you a picture of it. The only reason to sell it is I just don't need 2 buckets.

RPMs Thanks for you post I haven't made it to a rod run at pf but I may try to this year. Most of my time has been used keeping up a race car until I gave it up. Now I am thinking of building a T and having something I can drive for more than one night without having to do major work. I May get with you on that frame I think that's the way I will go. Do you live close to nash?

|RPMs||I have built 2 t bucket frames for myself out of 2x3 tube and the material cast less then $200. I see you are in Nashville, you ever come to Pigeon Forge for the rod runs?|

Oh, you mean the roadster? That's not doing bad either, but very few miles on it so far. This coming summer will tell the tale when I start getting some real time behind the wheel. Feel free to PM me or start a new thread if you have specific questions.

|cboy||I used a boxed model T frame under the very first bucket I built back in the 60's - but then I was young and stupid. It CAN be done but I think most folks would advise you to either buy a frame or build one out of 2x3 or 2 x4 rectangular tubing. By the time you beef up that T frame, you'll have almost as much money into it as you would building a frame from scratch. And the scratch built frame will be a lot safer.|

I Can Get My Hands On (free) An Original 20's Frame I Thought I Would Box It And Use It To Build My T. Would This Be Worth It Or Would Buying A New Frame Be A Lot Better Way To Go. Or Is It Of Value As An Original Frame. Also How Can I Figure Out The Year Of The Frame It Has Wire Spoke Wheels Still On It And The Oil Pan Is Still There It Was Sitting In Field Since I Was A Kid. I Like The Idea Of Using This Frame.
