  • T-Buckets, why all the hate?

    I just got done looking at a Facebook post by DF,





    The announcement was "the next HRM project" but the feedback was cold at best...there seems to be mad hate for these little rods?

    So why do you hate/love them?

      I was in one ONCE. Scary! I don't like them at all, silly cartoon clown cars.
      I think the "Track-T" concepts could be fun but not a T-bucket.

        Love 'em! .... just don't really care for the attitude of the majority of the owners around here. They are uppity and self centered, plus all of them in these parts are show queens.

          M'eh. Just no interest in them. Would I go for a ride in one? Sure. Would I drive one if offered? Sure. Would I buy or build one? No.
          Escaped on a technicality.

            If it looks like a fuel altered it's cool, if it looks like a munster mobile, no thanks.

                ^^^^"it's just a game foker!"

                I'm not sure I could ever get used to steering with a vertical steering collumn....

                on one side it's pretty close to the ultimate power to weight ratio combination,
                on the other side - that's only cool if it can actually get the power to the ground, and be fun to drive, the few T buckets I've been around were either over chromed show queens - or hopelessly traction limited - or both.

                Now - would I drive one on every sunny day I could if someone gave me one - hell yea.
                There's always something new to learn.

                    I wouldn't exactly call them GAY....What would you call a little electric car?

                          Not diggin them either. They all look like they drove off the set of the Munsters.

                            Never ridden in one and don't want to. Agree on the owners' attitudes as well.

                              a way to use old stuff.
                              that is all I see.

                              attitudes are probably first hot rods with not much credit.

                              the years of v8 and these chassis must have overlapped in the 40s...
                              no nikon point and shoots to capture them I guess. :

                              no one laughs at a 366 truck engine (396) in a chevelle... must be the fenders hiding it.

                              I like it all but where front axle is...and belly is way up high on the straight rails...but that is the way it is.
