I am an OEF/OIF veteran who loves hot rods of all types. Every since I can remember, I have dreamed of fixing up the 36 and 38 Chevy's that were sitting on my grandfather's farm. Now that I have a family and my children are getting old enough to appreciate cars and their heritage, I need to get this car back on the road. I had big plans, but got laid off several years ago and plans got changed. I love building things out of wood and metal and bringing back the beauty from things that aren't useful anymore. Last year I was diagnosed with a disease that causes brain tumors and it has really refreshed my passion to get this car rebuilt and cruise through our beautiful country with my family. I went to school for auto collision and even had my own shop for a time.
