hmm, there site is down tonight seems. here is the direct link, tbuckets.com normally works but this will be faster loading, when the site actully works. as for cost, it's T performance or speedway, both ~about~ the same, but your closer to T performance so... http://www.tperformance.com/

WOW! Checked out speedway and I REALLY liked those prices. Im 16 and im on a budget, and I was looking into a '67 Plymouth Satellite out in PA, original 383 4 speed car. But it would run me a good 5 grand to get on the road, and still need body work and paint. Those kits on speedway are about 3 K. And I already have a SBC that needs assembling. Should make an easy 350 hp once assembled, enough to scare the hell out of me in a T bucket for sure.

well, I thought I was going to build a '23 T bucket, seemed cheap, $4k for the kit, but add up everything you need for it to compleate, and your well over $20k using bolt togther, no fabrication or welding parts. basic total performance kit is $4k for the basic kit, but your getting better parts than the speedway stuff, and there right in wilmington ct, just go pick up what you need, no shipping nessasary ( cost saving ). not to mention, if you get stuck, they can help you out quicker than speedway

Go Total Performance. Mickey Lauria has sold so many of these he probably has all the part numbers memorized. This is what on can look like.

Depending on what you want or can spend is the limit

I built a Totla Performance car. You can see the build up in my journal. Good Luck!

You should be able to do it for well under $10K if your innovative and just want something fun to drive. You could do a "rat rod" style. Then you would save a lot on paint and shiney stuff. Thats were the money is. You can alway upgrade later. Find yourself a good running donor car and strip it for parts. Just don't skimp on brakes. Let me know if you follow though, I know some tricks to get around some of thier expensive stuff (like the $600 Wilwood front brakes they will try to sell you)
