    Always liked the Uncertain T. How about this Steve Stanford version from R&C August 1993? Looks a bit more practical and I'm willing to donate the left over posts from my chopped T coupe to someone who would build one. Scan-191105-0001.jpg

    If I was lucky enough to own either the original or the tribute, i'd build a room on my house, install a turn table and special lighting, a custom armchair and just sit back and enjoy the art. Driving it would be like using the Mona Lisa as a TV tray.

  5. The Uncertain-T is an incredible car that pushed boundaries both visually and technically, and the story behind it it fascinating. I'm glad that this recreation exists, and, according to Steve Scott, he knows where the original is. Makes me a bit sad that (yet again) I didn't get to SEMA this year. I would have liked to have seen it in person.

  7. Funny you should mention a Model A. Here is Road Hog from 1972 in New Zealand. A shortened Model A sedan.

    My father owns it and we are in the process of restoring it.

    That's been talked about forever, Steve Scott is full of crap, he doesn't know where the original is, it's gone forever I believe.

    If the original still existed there is no way it would not have been dragged out and resurrected by someone by this point in time.

    Anything is possible, the Golden Sahara was hidden away for 50 years before resurfacing again.

    Peoria, 1970, with an action shot of what looks like what is left of the Uncertain T. There is another shot floating around here of a group of cars from the actual event, that shows the rear of this same ride. 1970 Street rod Nats Peoria.jpg
     
  12. There was more than one body built, not sure Steve Scott built them though. I saw a blue one at Goodguys Pleasanton about 18 years ago. The one above is not the Uncertain T.

    I have never seen the Original car in Person. Just pictures and built the Model when I was a kid. This recreation looks spot on other than the Right Hand steering wheel.

    If you study the details closely, the body is identical to it.

    That body in the Peoria photo is most definitely not identical.
    The top is not at the same slope angle and the rear panel with the rear window is more upright and not leaning with as much forward angle as the original.

    Oh, but is the body sitting at the same angle? I don't think it is even sitting on the same chassis that Steve built, but I do believe the picture shows the body of what was the Uncertain T.
     
  18. I see lots of differences in the Peoria body compared to the real Uncertain T. Steve Scott (if he really knows) says the original car is still in one piece, but needs restored. Maybe it will be like Norm's Kookie T and show up at an auction when the guy that owns it now passes away. Remember the original car was repainted, and had different wheels and tires.

    I am surprised with the rack and pinion steering.
