Hello! My name is Colton, I'm 21 years of age. I grew up my whole life as a surfer in San Clemente California. I work as a Valet for a high rated resort. When I'm not working I'm fixing my truck or I'm surfing. I am going to school for auto mechanics and welding as of this coming fall of 2014 where I aspire to make a career restoring old cars.

I bought my truck this past April. Being raised in a family that thrives on 50's and 60's music and surfing at San Onofre beach, I have always had a heart for the style back then. Personally I wish I lived in that time, and since time travel isn't exactly possible yet, restoring old cars makes me feel like I'm living I. That time.

I chose the c10 because the chevy pickups in the early 60's look much greater than the fords of that time, and it would be a great looking truck with surfboards on the back. All my intentions with this truck are to restore it and use it as a learning experience to work on my future old car projects.
