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.

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!!
It was a real pleasure, Rolla! NTBA just keeps getting better with more and more regional events and everyone should mark their calendars and start preparing for the big one July 8-11, 2015 in beautiful Green Bay, Wisconsin!

Don’t know what you’re referring to in your request for order forms, Eric. If you can be more specific, I’ll see what I can do. Thanks.
Doug says this makes me want to do mine over again
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.
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. We’re based in Las Vegas but can do a phone interview. Please take a minute and visit driverstalkradio.com, watch the show and see if you think this would be worth your time. My email address is, email@example.com Thanks, RT
p.s. Excellent work on the website!
What a great collection of buckets, wish we had something like this in Australia.
Ross, I’ve always been impressed with the quality and quantity of Australian T-Buckets and agree wholeheartedly that it would be great to see them all together!
I love all street rods but T-Buckets are the best.
I agree with you, David, that T-Buckets are terrific. And judging by the town’s reception to them, they agree, too.
Thanks for the great pics! I haven’t been able to attend the Nats since Colorado Springs. Miss all the fun!
You’re more than welcome, Dave. I’ve enjoyed so many of your pics over the years.
