T-Bucket fanatic since 1957 when my 8 year old eyes became glued to a full page LIFE magazine photo of Norm Grabowski in the wildest hot rod I had ever seen! I later discovered the fascinating T-Buckets of TV Tommy Ivo, Marty Hollmann, Bob Johnston and Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s T-Bucket inspired Outlaw. I was hooked for life on T-Bucket hot rods!

TBucketPlans.com originated in 2005 as a personal blog extolling the virtues of T-Buckets. In 2009 I blogged about Chester Greenhalgh, the "how to" genius who wrote the legendary, out-of-print “How to Build a T-Bucket Roadster for Under $3000”. That led to a friendship with Chester and our partnership in marketing the updated eBook version of his T-Bucket building bible. The T-Bucket fire burns stronger and stronger.

The 23 Ford Model T roadster that Adam Lucier built is the perfect example of how dramatically different a T-Bucket can be when careful attention and planning are done in terms of unique details. This is a T-Bucket that is distinctively different, yet it is pretty straightforward in its construction. What makes it a real […]

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of unique T-Buckets. I also grew up in awe of the Allison-powered “Green Monster” […]
