After purchasing a new home that had a nice sized out building on the property I started my dream project, little did I know that life was going to show up and change my plans and halt the project. A bouncing baby boy and four years later it was time to rekindle the fire and return to my dream car except this time it was something different, it wasn’t just my project it was a father son project, something I had only dreamt would happen. During the cleanup of the old chicken coop the front section collapsed due to poor engineering and age. Determined to not let this delay us on our build I used it as a teaching experience. With a tight budget we made due with what we had left and converted the old chicken coop into a small usable shop. I want my son to grow up knowing that even if life throws you a curve you just hang on, ride it out and don't give up on your dream. I want him to know that being a champion isn't about pricey new things it's about being determined, working hard and doing your best.
