my t bucket 38 years later the test of time
« on: June 15, 2017, 07:29:00 AM »


went to a car show tonight and here is my brothers car i built for him 38 years ago and all untouch except for the tires and the fake air cleaner the guy changed, Paul Ferrazzani was a witness as the paint was still perfect and even heard the man saying that I was the original builder. Not tooting my own horn but show me another 40 year old build that still looks like this without redoing it over......

Paint looks real good for that age. HATE those friggen air cleaners, why the hell do guys do that!! LOVE the open letter Cobra valve covers.

Always hated those Garlits Performance Products fake injection air cleaners.  Just as bad as the fake Olds valve covers people put on SBCs.  The car however, looks amazing for that age!
