    How many lanes can you change when you stab the throttle?:)
    We went ditch to ditch in the last T-bucket I rode in.
     
  12. Very nice. It has just the right rake which gives it that mean look, and the BBC makes it a mean T-Bucket.

    Enjoy your roadster. They're a handful to drive,especially at speed, on a windy day! Watch out for the bump steering, it can break a tooth.
     
  14. Very nice car. Get rid of a few things(steering wheel, cheap chrome v/c and the filters in the ac and it would be a spot on 70's style T which I love.

    Before you go to big rubber, remember, tires are relativly cheap as compared to axles , rearends ,driveshafts,transmissions, etc. You get the message??

    Sweet, I think my four banger would have a hard time keeping up with that. Careful is the key word with that beast.

    Nice bucket, still miss mine from 25 years ago. Would like to find it if it is still around Vegas. Tunnel rams cool, but pain in the ass.

    Nice car except for the BBC instead of a Ford. I like the TR on these(once you tune it to work). My 23 is all FORD(306 SBF/C4/8.5). DPI
     

  23. The wheels are what makes your car. Slot mags rule.

    Pretty sweet ride. I agree that slight tweaks would make that beast near-perfect.

    My first hot rod was a "T" and my wife loved it. We sold it to pay for another project and regretted it ever since. Looked high and low and never been able to run it down. You've got a killer "T" there..enjoy.
     
  28. how do you keep it from plowing straight ahead with that power?

    Nice looking "T". I've had a few. For some reason I keep going back to them.
