    6cyl Modified/t-bucket

     



    Was stalled on the roadster so jumped into this new project. Had the parts for years and started modifying the body awhile ago so just had to decide on chassis suspension etc. Shortened the chassis rails and boxed them then set them up on the chassis table with the mtr/box in place and body on to check proportions.

    Doing OK. Adapting to a single pull vs pulling as a pair is not as easy as some seem to think, but getting there.... Was talking earlier tonight with a couple that visited Godzone in March, thinking about all the things I missed. May need to plan a trip.

    Good to see you here, Mark! I've seen some pics of the T bucket flying around a dirt track on your FB page. Not sure you're planning for this one to ever see the open road, so maybe no certs?

    Hi JB , its been finished for awhile and i raced it at jalopy dustup in january.
    Its built to the manual , but i wasn't going to cert it til after i got the roadster an 34 olds back on the road. Having said that i recently sent the paperwork off to "the Admiral" and have had the initial ok from him , so will probably carry on and get it in the system now i have retired.
    The only photos of it have been on my facebook page as i find it very time consuming with the computor i use to change the photo sizes to enable the photos to be put on the Maverick an this and other sites.
    I have had another joint replacement (left shoulder) an am on a compulsery go-slow for the next 6 weeks so i should be able to get more photos up.
    Thanks.
