About “Super Sonoma”

This truck was origionally my brothers, He was diagnosed with Spindle Cell Sarcoma (soft tissue cancer) four years ago `03 and unfortunately passed away two years ago`05. Before he passed away my brother signed the truck over to me and made me promise to take care of it, and to continue with the customization of it to make this truck a one of a kind late-model hot rod, and try to shine some light on christians in the car scene.

I have been showing only two years and have only won one award so far. Best Un-Finished at my car clubs annual benefit car show. Some of my favorite show to go to are at churches, I like bringing a positive to what seems like a negative. Most generally what i have found is at alot of the churches i go to, on a personal spiritual level, I am often sized up and people try to make assumptions on the car show world that we are a bunch of godless heathens. Of course im talking about a large generalization of the car world as a whole. Its fun for me to go to a car show at a church on a saturday night and then the following thursday night go and play for them at a sing, I like looking throught the crowd to see the expressions on their faces when they realize who i am, and then they realize where they last saw me.
