In the first three episodes on this build you got a history of the original Tweedy Pie, and then go on the hunt for parts to build the Mad Fabricator’s clone. Think of it as a homage to the great style and design that is present in the original. Then you see this sucker come together into a rolling chassis. That can be one of the biggest moments in a car build, and for Tweedy it was no exception. In the next video in the series more parts are acquired, the chassis gets more love, and some massaging starts happening to get the parts looking just like the original.
For those of you who are wondering why the title of the last post says it is NOT A T-Bucket, know that this is because I am not a fan of the “traditional” t-bucket look with all kinds of crap hanging off of them, straight up and down steering columns, horrible build quality, and nothing that remotely counts as comfort. This is not one of those cars. This is a hot rod, through and through. Yes, it is based on a model T Roadster, which was referred to as a bucket back in the day, but that label has come to mean something else in the past few decades and I just don’t like the connotation. This car here is cool.
Would I build one like it? Maybe. Maybe not. It certainly isn’t my normal style, but it has style and thought and was inspiring to people of all ages which is what makes the Tweedy Pie such an influential hot rod in history. Watch the videos below, and stay tuned because we’ll have more coming soon.
