This classic 1986 Chevy C20 Farm find could not be happier with its make over. I have installed a Jegs high performance GM crate 350 horse powered engine with a higher heat range Champion spark plug, Edelbrook intake & carburetor, Headers and dual exhaust. My passion for cars began as a kid when my father gave me my first car which was a 1976 Chevy Malibu Classic which did not run. I was determined not to be the kid bumming a ride so I tuned it up and on my first test drive realized it did not stop. I also did my first brake job that day and my passion for fixing cars began. I love the challenge of bringing cars back to life and keeping them on the road. Did I mention this is how I also met my wife of 17 years?. My passion for fixing cars has also become hers as we run a small auto repair shop together which one day we will pass on to our daughters. I would have to say we are a Champion Proud family!
