The Uncertain-T

By , Photography by Bud Lang, Car Craft Archives

You might be squinting at this nutty T-bucket and wondering why this isn’t a drag car or street machine. Indeed, CC is best known for wrinkle walls and tire smoke, but in the past, the magazine covered racing on the Salt, street rods, and T-bucket builds. The Uncertain-T was a Nov. ’65 cover car built by then CC Associate Editor Steve Scott. He hand-built the plug for the fiberglass body and an aluminum 2x3 frame after being inspired by a cartoon illustration of the car. The photo was shot by Bud Lang in 1965. Steve is kneeling next to the car, and that’s Don Garlits seated inside. The story goes that Garlits rode in the T from the shutdown area to the starting line after winning the ’65 Bakerfield Fuel & Gas Championships.
