HEY PEOPLE. I wanna build an Old School T Bucket Hot Rod. Like the one you see in the pictures. I like the t’s I’ve see on www.RatRodUniverse.com

    Yeah, Here is some info on T-bucket. I know you see ‘em on http://www.ratroduniverse.com but if you google T-bucket you can find a ton of Info on them. The two biggest manufacturers of T kits are “Total performance” and “Spirit T’s”. There is a lot of possibilities for building. In my experience I would start with a kit. For 3 reasons. They come with a manufacturers cetificate of Origin for titling, They are safer than home built stuff and in the end you will spend less money to complete your proect because they will be more complete when you buy it. Good Luck! Oh Yeah Speedway Motors sells them as well. I like those guys check ‘em out at http://www.speedwaymotors.com

    That’s a great project! I’m also in the rat-rod fever! I always wanted to restore my 55 Ford Vicky (see my blog) as an original car but now I think, nothing more boring than that… so I’ll make a rat rod out of it! Rat rods are just great. A T-bucket like the one in the pictures would be just great!! Do it! I would say, do it yourself… no manufacturer… check Richard’s Peek channel… he has a lot of how-videos. http://www.youtube.com/user/rpeek#p/c/EFA7869136219577/9/2eE0-aZaSnQ
