  1. Another great one. I’ve read about this car in a recent car mag (name escapes me just now) and was impressed by the initiative, execution, and the the reason the car was built. It’s a treat to find out more here, thanks!

  2. I ran into Doug at the Lonestar Roundup. I was dismayed by how little attention he and the car was drawing. The car truly is fantastic, and I encourage everyone to take a shot at winning this thing. I took a bunch of pictures I could post.

    • Thanks Lenny, I agree that Doug’s vision and workmanship are fantastic on this T roadster. I think it’s easy for people to think he’s a guy who just lucked into buying a time-warp T roadster and don’t realize it’s a new build. I was able to get a bunch of photos at the Detroit Autorama and will be posting them on a new post about the car soon at TBucketPlans.com. Thanks again, John
