Hi Folks, I'm new here so be gentle! I finished my bucket last summer after many starts and stops (it's been taking up space in my garage for about six years now) but I finially got it registered and tagged about the time the weather went south. I've got about 90 miles on it and nothing has broken or fallen off so I guess I'm good to go....can't wait for summer.

I'd post some pictures but it says can't.

Added pictures to photo gallery...let me know what you think.

Nice to be here!

Thanks guys, yeah it's a Total Performance. It's my first and probably my last as I'm now 60 and getting a little arthritic! Getting old sucks! It was sure fun to build though and it's a kick to drive although a little scary at times. Nothing like thumbs up everywhere you go.

I would say you are about in the middle of the bucket owner's age group. You will see that when you go to your 1st "T-buckets only" event. And of course you have to do that, its in the bylaws, ya know?

Hey Ger, whats cooking?

01-29-2011, 08:06 AM
waiting for the tank to be welded so I can start dressing it back. After that its time to see if its good enough to powder coat in polished brass. If not then it will be some HoC paint. Finished turning up the rear suspension pivot covers in SS today.

Its slow as always but if plans work out and the Vehicle Licensing dept allow on the road this year.

Not sure if my old heart can take that first ride to the DOT station.

Love those headers and exhaust. I think I'll change mine.

I added some pictures just to show that I really did build my bucket and some shots of the exhaust. The pipes were really easy to build, got the bends and a straight piece from Summit and just had to make a few cuts and weld them together. Not a lot of room under there as everyone knows but I think they came out alright. The Cherry Bombs sound good too! Thanks for the kind words and thanks for looking.

SWEET looking ride, stance, color, contrasts all look good, you have a good eye for the styling.

Man... You guys got some squeeky clean and spatious garages! :)
