T-Bucket Nationals 2014 Report

The T-Bucket Nationals 2014 in scenic Mountain Home, Arkansas just wrapped up this evening with a terrific car show on the grounds of Arkansas State University Mountain Home.

I’m happy to report that in the 14 year existence of the National T-Bucket Alliance that of the three T-Bucket Nationals held in this scenic town that the T-Bucket Nationals 2014 was the most successful yet — in my opinion.

But with over 130 T-Buckets in attendance you can’t argue with what a feast for the eyes that was.

Mountain Home has become very T-Bucket friendly, given the events held there, and when you learn that in a town of about 15,000 population that 3 of the local law enforcement officers are also T-Bucket owners it gives you a warm feeling.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that T-Bucket builder Spirit Cars had its roots in Mountain Home and today is just down the road in larger facilities in Flippin, Arkansas.

And it’s very refreshing when the Managing Editor of the local paper chronicles his ride in a T-Bucket with a story titled, “I’m Officially a Buckethead”.

Of course, the beautiful Ozarks setting of Mountain Home made for perfect cruises during the T-Bucket Nationals 2014 and they were well attended. In addition, over 60 T-Buckets participated in the Friday night Red, White and Blue parade in downtown Mountain Home.

I’m hurrying to get this post done, so I’ll be short on words and long on photographs. Just remember, when you want even more T-Bucket Nationals 2014 photo fixes, you’ll find more than 600 photos in the albums on our TBucketPlans.com Facebook Page.

Over the next week or so, though, I will be posting some feature stories on some of the more interesting T-Buckets at the T-Bucket Nationals 2014.

In case you couldn’t make it to the T-Bucket Nationals 2014, you can start planning now for the T-Bucket Nationals 2015, which will be held July 9-11, 2015 in Green Bay, Wisconcin.

  1. Thanks for sharing both your insight and all of the photos John!! I agree, 2014 was the best and I attribute that to the work and planning of Rick Lucy and his team, all of the volunteers who led the cruises, the police department, city officials, businesses and most important the friendly folks who also made us feel so welcome!!

    • That’s one of the other things that’s so great about T-Buckets, Doug. If you want to change things, they’re probably the easiest and most economical hot rod to do that with. You’d be amazed how many T-Buckets have undergone total transformations.

  2. Great coverage, thanks for all the photos. My name is Rick Titus, I’m the Host of Drivers Talk Radio and would love to have John on the show.
