I work in the oilfield for Halliburton and don’t have a lot of time off. Ive been working for Halliburton for 5 years now and the money that I make has allowed me to build the truck for the 3rd time the way I really wanted it.
• How long have you owned your truck? Ive owned it ever since high school. 10+ years now. The wife and I have been married with this truck and had a lot of arguments over the truck. But it is part of the family.
• What made you decide to buy this truck? I love old cars and love old trucks especially, the main reason I bought the truck is because It was the most dependable truck around that year range that I could afford at the time.
• How do you store your truck, at home, garage, outside etc? What do you enjoy about your truck the most? I store her in our 20x20 Shop and the thing I love most about the truck now is driving her and seeing the looks on people’s faces when we drive by. I love it.
• Who or what was your biggest influence in building your truck? My biggest influence would have to be a person, chip foose to be exact. I can relate to his passion and the way he brings it into the Art form is remarkable. The detail and craftsmanship of his projects is in detail that I wish to accomplish as good as he does one day.
• What has been the biggest obstacle you have faced in working on your project? How did you/do you handle it? My biggest obstacle would have to be criticism; I am not good at it and have yet to go to any car shows. Im hoping to this year.
• What/who is you favorite/best part source? Classic Performance products would be my number one, Ebay would be second, LMC Third.
• What are some things have helped your project to be a success? My Job that allows me to spend the money that I do on it. And my wife for allowing me.
• What is the history behind your truck? I have yet to look up the VIN code or do any kind of research on the truck. Plan to here shortly.
• What do you use your truck for? (hauling, cruising, daily driver,shows, drag racing, work truck, mudding etc): Just Cruising, hopefully shows for 2013.
• What is your favorite memory with your truck? The day the wife and I decided to tear her back down to the frame and build her the way we wanted without settling for second hand parts.
• Whats your favorite modification done to truck and why? The Motor, I love having a professional built motor that I know isn’t going to leak or break down. The 635 hp helps a lot to.
• If you had one thing to do over on your build, what would it be and why? I would powder coat the frame, Just because I love detail. I like the way powder coat shines over paint.
• What are your future plans for your truck? Take it to as many car shows as I can for 2013 & Pass the truck down to my kids after im to old to drive it.
• What words of advice do you have to people who are just starting out with their project? Do it right the first time so you don’t have to do it over again.
