So, many years ago, before I retired, during my day job I worked with a guy who never owned a hot rod and wanted one desperately, so, for his fiftieth birthday, his wife contacted me and asked if I'd help him get there. Sure I said, the steel was bought, a model a cowl was found and the work began, a few months later a chassis was supporting the cowl and home it went. Four bar front and rear, ez steer rack-vega box setup installed, life is good. A little later, a 32 pickup cab was found, back to my shop, make it fit, weld in firewall, floors, modify homemade box, French in some 59 cad taillights, run all the brake lines, truck is getting closer, I might add that there was no charge for work done, we were friends. Truck moves on, more work is done. Not by me. Fast forward, many years, fucking nice truck is done, semi period piece, good enough for a magazine, I read a story online about the owner and the truck, no mention of my work, actually, there's mention of someone I never heard of taking credit for my work, so I fire off an angry email telling owner to make it right. He promises he will, and the matter is settled, or......is it? Then, last months issue of Canadian rodder comes out and.......there's the truck on the cover, wow I say, run home with it.Yep, my name is there, spelled wrong, and it seems my contribution is rather minor, I only did half the chassis, and again, others get credit for my work. So, another email to owner, and forwarded to the editor of the mag, all backed up by pictures of the build on my website as proof. Pictures that have been there almost ten years. Magazine editor couldn't have been nicer, explained to him, I didn't care about the glory, never cared if it ever made the big time, I did it as a favour to a friend, a birthday gift, but....I wasn't going to stand by and let someone else get credit for my efforts, that was a different matter. Why this has happened, no idea, I don't think I'm on the outs with this guy, maybe he remembers things differently than I, it has been a long build and people have come and gone, but still, if you're handing out credit for work done, get it right.
