I bought my dream truck with the banged up fenders all 4 of them. I had pulled the body off and boxed in the frame rebuilt the 327 and 400 transmission. Then I found out that I had cancer and started my treatments. This truck became my inspiration and battle I would work on it for about 15 minutes and rest again and so on. It took me 9 years to get it where it is now. I don't believe I could have made it without rebuilding my 36 Chevy I did all the work myself it is not perfect but I did it.
In 2011 my Doctor asked me what I wanted for my birthday I told him I wanted to drive my truck but I wound up back in the hospital on my birthday. I had just got my license plates and it was ready to drive. It truly is my inspiration and it has given me the will to live.
