What about you?

I’ve been building cars and trucks since I was old enough to drive. They aren’t perfect, but I build them with my own two hands from the ground up.

I’m a retired FF and now work for the railroad.

Any stories regarding this project?

I have never been a huge stepside fan until I saw this truck on Craigslist.

I went to see it and fell in love with the patina. I knew this was the one!

It’s for sale by the way!

Any garages, parts stores, fabrication shops, etc you want to call out specifically?

Always a fan of GSI and their products.

AZ Pro Performance is also a great place for parts.
