I know that the bash site has had numerous hot of spam. We are working on fixing the issue. I also know there hasn't been much traffic on the site either. I want to find out how many are left. Lets do a roll call and see how many people are out there to see how we will proceed. We are going to start posting daily.

I am still here and check in almost daily. Since my sedan is finished, (almost, still need interior) I don't have much to post about. Maybe I need to get a 34 coupe body, and start over.

I still follow the threads, but there hasn't been much activity. And a lot of spam! I'm having a load of fun with my recently finished T! I've been to the Lonestar and Nashville Goodguys events, and several local shows and cruise ins. I'm ready to build another one!

I come here daily to see what's new. The best suggestion would be to resubmit some of the old videos of how to and the way Bob does his work in the shop and keeping fresh ideas in his business plans

The best video I saw was when he had a fresh mold being prepped for a new run of bodies, which showed people how expensive and labor intensive it is to build fiberglass bodies. And another of installing the back door on a C-Cab. Fiberglass work isn't easy or cheap, no matter how you do it.

Articles like these give people a start on believing they can build a bucket at a cost that is reasonable with the amount of talent/money they have.

Facebook may be the trend right now, but a lot of the people who are capable to build a T-Bucket just don't use it to find out what they need. Computers are hard enough for them. So if they don't find what they are looking for on line, they use the phone or give up and do something else. Just my .02 worth and I hope more people will keep looking for these little cars to get into the hot rod world.

Yes we are planning on doing videos again. So far less than 40 people have viewed this post and only 4 people have commented on it.

As soon as I can get a hot rod or 2 sold and out of the way, I do want to start on a 34 coupe. Room is my problem now. With 7 cars that need kept inside, I ran out of room.
The videos were helpful, especially when needing some information on a subject that you may have not had a answer for.
I know when I was build the Honky line of trailers, the molds were the big expense, and the most time consuming. If for instance you had 10k in a mold, the first body out cost that much plus material and time. Lots of money for a 800 dollar body. Good thing is, you cut that in half every time you sell one.

Even though I've finished and driving my bucket , I still check in, usually check in on weekends. I agree with the others, I always enjoyed the videos especially when they include tips about the little things in building a tbucket. Although mine is not a Spirit kit I still learned alot from this site to help in my build. Thanks, Hershey.

If you go back and read post #8 and #9, I bet you will see a lot more traffic, for people need to know how to do things themselves because everyone can't afford it other wise.

I'm still here. I bought a '50 Ford coupe. but lost interest and will get back on the T when I fix it enough to sell. Got a real slick (I think) idea of something real off the wall that could get 30 MPG and have about 4.5:1 power to weight ratio. Should be real interesting! John

I am going to have to rethink the forum. The numbers are just not there. I have tried to keep up with the spam and also have posted a few things with minimum feedback and the number of views on the topics posted just are not great. I think too many use Facebook, twitter and other social media instead of message boards anymore.
