Hot Rod Magazine’s T-Bucket Project Car

Hot Rod Magazine T-Bucket Project Car
Hot Rod design legend Thom Taylor pitches in with wiring on the new Hot Rod magazine Speedway Motors T-Bucket project car.

I was a bit premature back in April, 2011, when I posted that Hot Rod Magazine’s Next Project Car is a T-Bucket. But now it’s a reality and you can learn more about the Speedway Motors T-Bucket they’re building on Hot Rod’s Blog.

Previously, I let my enthusiasm get the best of me in seeing David Freiburger’s post of a T-Bucket mock-up pic, which turned out to be a ‘glass body, some steel tubing, a small block engine and a couple wheels and tires. But he was true to his word and now it’s a reality that we’ll look forward to following with much interest in the pages of Hot Rod, as well as online.

It’s very appropriate that the oldest magazine devoted to the sport, Hot Rod, introduced us to The World’s First Fiberglass T-Bucket Hot Rod (Buzz Pitzen’s “Glass Image”) over 50 years ago and is now building the traditional looking fiberglass-bodied Speedway Motors Tribute T, produced by “America’s Oldest Speed Shop”.

This is very exciting in the T-Bucket world and we will do our best to keep you updated — and be sure your Hot Rod subscription’s current because you won’t want to miss this.
