    Dad and I really enjoyed the Fresno show. It was great to meet all the guys from Hatfield and some great photo opps. Unfortunately Gene was in Cleveland. How did the truck do? Since it was a 14 hr. drive, we couldn't stay for the awards presentation. There was some very tough competition there!

    This is Don Epling's granddaughter, Dawn. GREAT JOB on the truck! Wow! I love it! I was wondering how the truck did at the show in Fresno. I am really excited to hear. They had to head back home son they didnt get to stay and watch awards. It really meant a lot to him to get to see it finished and chat with all of you! Too bad he didnt get to talk with Gene.

    Austin was really good. The show wasamazing as always. Good cars, great crowd, awsome food. It was awsome to see the truck outside on the grounds with other customs. A lot of people took the opportunity to get up close and personal with it.

    I still can't get over how different it looks out in the sun.

  10. This truck is a million times cooler to see in person than in pictures and that says something about the quality of the workmanship done on the restoration especially when guys post picture of it like notrob13's! Killer picture man!!

    Well the truck is on it's way to Long Beach CA as we speak. Going to the Cavalcade of Customs show. It's going to be a good time.

    This last Saturday we won best paint and a top 25 award at the local Emory Classics Around the Square. It was a good show.
