Are you interested in a real hot rod T-Bucket or T-Bucket kit? Our cars and kit packages are not like any other T-Bucket out there. We have a complete engineered vehicle system that performs (ride, drive, steering, braking, etc.) like a regular car. Our vehicles are hand made and tig (heli-arc) welded. No one else in the industry does that for any car or kit. The ride, drive, and ergonomic performance of our hot rods and T-Bucket kits are unmatched and the stability and confidence of our cars and kits is superior to all.

We stand behind what we build 100% and are confident enough to tell you “ if your vehicle doesn’t perform as we state we will buy it back”.

So take a good look at the vehicles featured on our web-site (from mild to wild) and read the testimonials from our customers. If this sounds like something you’re interested in then give us a call. Remember regardless of the level of performance
you want in your car (260 hp to 565 hp) your car or kit will perform confidently.

Thanks for taking a look at Detroit Speedcraft and we look forward to talking to you.

Our Customers Love Their Hot Rods!

2014 is shaping up to be ...Untouchable! Sharon and I are either on long drives, or out hitting every area cruise night that time and schedule will allow. No matter the venue, we continue to receive positive comments regarding the design, engineering, build quality and the attention to detail that differentiates your product from that of any of your competitors.

Prior to beginning this journey with you, we spent considerable time reviewing build options as well as the companies that could supply a turnkey vehicle. What we found was there are very few doing business who can claim a similar completion rate for their kits, a true “drive away” turnkey option, and most importantly the handling characteristics that you can. Your website, with pictures and videos highlighting your products and past builds, is one of the best and most informative around. We asked about customer references before making our decision to proceed, and every one enthusiastically endorsed your product, and the experience.

As you know I am a “design guy”, and like all my projects I came to this one with a vision. You were able to take all our objectives, our design theme and my numerous sketches and integrate them with your “engineered system” to produce a one of kind vehicle. You worked with us from beginning to end, from original idea through delivery, allowing for the opportunity to brainstorm design ideas, make decisions, select components, and raise questions when we were unsure or felt uncomfortable for any reason. Beyond all the phone calls and email messages that we shared, we will always remember our trip to your shop. During that visit Dave spent a great deal of time explaining to Sharon the details of the vehicle you were building for us. On top of that, both of you thanked us several times for the opportunity to do so. You treated us like royalty, and on that day we knew we had made two new lifelong friends.

Now, specifically regarding our car, Untouchable. The car is fast!, and we only have the base engine option. The retro air cleaner we selected is acting like a ram air system, and I have to believe is adding some horses to the mix. I can’t wait to get it on a dyno. The Posi rearend you installed is a blast and does not compromise the cornering at all. The interior looks fabulous and is very comfortable. Cheers to Detroit Stitching, they nailed it from the sketches I provided. The grey we selected by mixing the standard colors looks great in person and receives many positive comments. I could go on, but the real headline here is the handling. Zero, I mean zero bump steer. Your suspension tracks absolutely straight over bumps and potholes. That is what you sold. That is what you provided. The steering for non-assisted is light and nimble. Many vehicles like this are fast, and many look good. There are very few that handle this well, and fewer still that combine handling, speed and good looks.

You gentlemen know your game, and you have a great product. We would consider it an honor to provide you with a reference at any time. Cue the music! "

"Dave & Tom,

First and foremost, thank you both for the truly great experience of bouncing ideas back and forth while you two were building the baddest hot rod on the planet! I can't begin to tell you how much fun this car is. I have been fortunate in my life to have owned a few "toys" such as motorcycles, jet skis, a jet boat and a performance car. None come close to this hot rod as far as "fun per dollar"! The car is a beast! I've been up to 115 mph and it was smooth and straight, and it gets there quick!

To anyone out there looking at the Detroit Speedcraft website thinking about buying a T-Bucket, stop thinking about it and get one!!! You won't regret it, unless your shy. These cars attract a lot of attention. I have had video taken by many people riding next to me. People from 8 to 80 LOVE this car, if I had a nickel for every time it's picture was taken, I could buy another one!

You guys should be very proud of your products. The workmanship is superb. Please feel free to have any potential customers give me a call, I would be happy to tell them what a great car this is. I wish I lived somewhere warm so I could drive it all year; maybe I'll move!!! Thanks again for everything and helping me through "midlife crisis".

You guys are the best. I LOVE MY HOT ROD!"
