About

I lost my son July 2004 We had just started to build the Garage when he died...We finished the garage on his birthdat Nov. 26, 2004. To keep my sanity my Brother talked me into buying something to restore. We found the truck...being that I was born in 1955 made it that much more appealing. Bought it in January 2005 and finished in January 2007. We have only done cruise ins localy, a few local car shows, charity shows where we won best paint a few times.This was our first time in a big car show "World of Wheels' Where we won 1st in our class "being that we was the only one in our class we had to win 1st LOL...We had a real fun time... met lots of new people...Had a lot of people admireing my truck....Makes me feel good that others admire it as much as I do...
The truck is dedicated to the memory of my beloved son:
COREY ALAN GARNER
