This nicely flamed blue beauty belongs to Mike Ray of Hudson, Florida and was Mike’s first car build back in 1976 when he was just 20 years old.

Of course, it wasn’t just all go. Mike also took home his share of car show trophies, thanks to that attention getting paint job and some nice chrome accents..

And to round things out as a true triple-threat-T, it was Mike’s Summer daily driver for over 15 years

Mike says the, “car has been sitting for a few years and I am slowly getting it back into shape.” Mike has an awesome example of a great 70s T-Bucket he should be rightly proud of and we’re proud to have it kick off our Let’s See Your T! series.

So, if you’d like to share your T-Bucket pride and joy with all the T-lovers who visit here, just check out what we’re looking for at Let’s See Your T! — and let’s see yours!
