Everything About T-Buckets!

It’s been called “The most complete Hot Rod how-to ever written!” Not too long ago, T-Bucket builders paid over $200 for it if they could find a copy. Why? Because professional T-Bucket builder Chester Greenhalgh poured years of blood, sweat and tears into revealing every detail of how anybody can easily build a T-Bucket hot rod on a beer budget, using readily available everyday materials and junkyard parts (or new ones, if you prefer).

The Revised Digital Edition of “How to Build a T-Bucket Hot Rod Roadster for Under $3000: kickin’ it old skool” is only $19.99. For that, you get 258 pages, with over 400 photos, templates, diagrams and illustrations that will reveal to you every detail of how to build your own T-Bucket hot rod roadster on a budget. Learn everything you’ll need to know that will save you time, money and needless frustration by being able to scratch build your own truly custom T-Bucket hot rod!
