Family is the one constant in your life that you can always count on.

In fact when we met Roger and his family at the 2010 F-100 Super Nationals in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, his kids commented several times about when packages of chrome-plated parts and truck gear arrived at the front door. In fact, when the truck was purchased for a mere $500 more than 10 years ago, his son Lance was so intrigued with the idea of a classic truck project that he jumped in with his dad and the two built it together.  When Lance was ready for an F-100 of his own, well, he followed in hid dad’s footsteps with another ’55, and dad helped swing some wrenches.
