Thanks to Rolla Hessel and “T-Odd” Mullins, we can now reveal the dates for the National T Bucket Alliance 2016 events tour.
For those unfamiliar with the organization, the National T-Bucket Alliance (NTBA) is a hot rod club focused on the Model T based hot rods commonly known as T-Buckets. The NTBA recognizes that members are as individual as their T-Buckets and each individual has their strengths and specialties. The NTBA offers the structure to bring these individual hot rodders with a common interest together. To do so, the NTBA supports local, regional, national events and charities.
It’s important to note that the Alliance’s leadership and positions are completely voluntary. NTBA is a family oriented club, offering something for every T-Bucket fanatic. Once you’ve become more familiar with the club, you’ll notice the personality, family values, and the channeled effort to see that each member has the support and information they need.
NTBA membership is only $35 for the first year and that includes membership card, windshield decal, and a cool NTBA T-Shirt. (Annual renewals are only $25). Click here to join now>
