    I was looking through some junk and found a photo of my first t Bucket. It was a fiberglass body, I don't remember the manufacturer, Car Craft plans from a series of articles on "How to build a T Bucket" circa 1968, a brand new 327 Chevy long block from Nicky Chevrolet in Chicago, 4 speed transmission and a 57 Chevy rear end with 411gears. It was never more finished than it was in the photo. I sold it when I was getting married in 1970. My current one was started in 1980 and finished in 1985. Fun to look at. I scanned the photo but can' t seem to load it. I'll keep trying.

    So it looks like the photo loaded. You just have to scroll down to see the photo once you click on the attachment.

    If you mean by load it, to place it in your post so we don't have to download it, then it can't
    be a PDF file. When you scanned it you most likely have a choice of which file format you
    want to save it in.

    I pulled it into Photoshop and tried to help the quality some, then I saved as a JPG file.

    It's always fun looking back to see where you came from.

    Yeah, that 67 Dodge was my favorite car. 383 with a 4 speed. 2 door hardtop. Black vinyl interior.
    Thanks Indy for fixing the photo. It looks better than the original! Next time I'll remember to save it as a jpg.
    Nickey with the backwards K. They had more speed equipment than you knew what to do with.

    Friend of mine got out of the service in 67 , had a pocket full of money and wanted a hemi charger from Mr norm , that's all we heard about , anyhow his mom took him up to Chicago (90 miles,) told it would take 3 weeks to get one , his mom made him think about it , went to the local dealer the next day , had his charger in 10 days and saved $300.
