My son recently destroyed our 23 T-bucket (got stupid and rolled it 3 times).
Among other salvageable parts, it had a 1960 3.08 posi which I built and installed a few years ago. It is like brand new, works perfect. Someone could own this cheap----------------but it would have to be picked up, I WILL NOT ship!!!!! Also the 66 M20 Muncie that was in the T-bucket is perfect.

Good thing he 'got stupid' and not 'got dead', that is a mess. Hope he's okay. Cars can be replaced.
I couldn't help notice....is that a white on blue 65 impala convert in the back ground?
It made me sift through my old pictures and I came up with this oldie.

Charles,
My son took his 7yr old son out for a ride in the T-bucket.
Short version, he got stupid (REAL STUPID!!!) on the Sat nite cruise strip, rolled it 3 times and both were ejected. Neither had any internal injuries or broken bones (our grandson had 2 gashes on his head and a cut on his ear that required stitches). The reason my son had no broken bones is because the police would not let me in the back seat of the police car with him!!!! I don't want him hurt (he could use some paint), but our grandson did not deserve to have his life jeopardized!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

Steve,
That is our 70 Chevelle Malibu. Over the past 20yrs, I've upgraded it with many factory options and SS components, such as the cowl induction hood. It was a factory 307/3sp on the column, factory air cond.
And now tilt/cruise, SB400, M22 and 12bolt posi. The cold factory air is still on R12.

What a mess Tom, I’m guessing it’s real easy to get stupid in a T bucket with power, short wheel base, it would come loose fast. Real lucky to see them walk away from being ejected and a triple rollover. That would have been very scary for the grandson and grandfather and I’m sure the father too. I have 2 young grandsons.

Im sure your son got the biggest scare of all, we’ve all done stupid things in the past and thankful to have survived them.

Probably the best place for that posi and 4 speed is as far as possible away from you, Nova Scotia would work. Get your son a stock Chevette automatic for training purposes?

That's too bad about the car. Having your son and grandson escape debilitating injuries was a real blessing! Good for for concerned!

Like many I never thought about the physical dangers and wreckage that can be incurred at times owning a hot car. Well that is until I noticed the baldazz front tire after making a very high speed race one night. I was very lucky too I guess.
Sorry you had to go through that ordeal :sad :

On the other hand I'm always glad when things work out for the best.

A Sting Ray era fuelie in a t-bucket? Very unique, I must say. Nice touch. Glad everyone is OK. Cars can be replaced. People, not so much.

Tom,

Just saw your post. So glad nobody was seriously injured. Sounds like the Lord was watching over them. Hope they are on the mend.

Thanks again Tom, I really think it was worth the 1150 mile round trip this weekend. It was very nice meeting you!
