the past

t-bucket

 

My father built this 1932 T Bucket in the 70’s and completed it in 1980. I drove it in a few parades and remember it being very hard to stop because it only had drum brakes in the rear with no front brakes at all. A lot of the parts were hand made in the machine shop my he worked at. I always thought he finished it to keep his mind off our mother who passed away that spring. But then I also thought he sold it to let go of the memories of her. For $5,000 someone got a great deal.
