Rod and Custom Dream Truck at my brothers shop 1980.

My brother gave me the photos of the Rod & Custom Dream truck at his shop, which ironically a few years later would be my body shop when he moved to a larger shop in the building. But seeing that photo floored me because not long after that my sign was painted on that rear door of the shop.

It's so wild to think that this truck, this HUGE part of my life would have been sitting there and I never went to see it, wild. And this photo was taken about 300 feet from where I am sitting posting this right now. The building is all gone now and there are three story apartments there now.

Anyway, cool photos, damn glad my brother took them and had them for me.

OMG OMY LIVING GOD the last photo is from his new shop and you can see my truck in the back ground at his old shop, my new shop. OMG HOW IN THE LIVING HELL did that happen! How could I have been there and not seen this truck at his shop?

I don't know actually. When my brother worked on it, it was owned by a guy in the city right next to me, Union City.
