Luckily my father had me under cars since I was little fixing stuff has been a major help. But as I get older it’s a bit harder to do the things I want to do with it. So few things are contracted to mechanics.
Customs -N- Classics
My name is Dennis.
I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (They call me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter and a handsome step-grandson. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Grand-kids aren’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
See my home page for more about me.

I’m currently 21 and close to graduating from college with a degree in electrical engineering.
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.
It was pulled out of the dirt and got running and driving at the farm he got it from.
The original paint still shines nicely, showing just a bit of patina in a couple places. The interior is still all original: door panels, seat upholstery, headliner, dash and paint all nicely preserved.
Hotels by day. Turning wrenches till I sleep.
Super cute wife and I build cars together.
I only have the time cleaning it.
I have enjoyed working on this pick up and changed my mind many times on how to build it.
I bought it brand new on October 1977 for $3200.00
