I remember all that like it was yesterday. Joey says I have a steel trap for a brain. I was standing next to Uncle Jim when Ross his brother-in-law at the time talked about Dakota Digital. At a Street Rod Nationals event that Dakota Digital and Midwest Street Rods(the original name of Dakota Street Rods) they met a man who owned a big time shop named Midwest Street Rods and him and Uncle Jim talked and Uncle Jim agreed to change the name of his shop and since he helped Ross get started, Dakota Street Rods was born. I took the company name and had a small street rod shop in Montana called Dakota Street Rods. I still use the frame table we built in the back shop, I have my 49 Chevy frame on it right now in my personal shop. I am in search of Cherry Delite, the museum sold it. 15 years since he died. My oldest boys middle name is James in honor of my uncle. I have a full forearm tattoo in honor of my uncle. I have so many stories and memories living at that shop. Joey and I were getting the cops called on us so many times. But the police loved us, they would stop by and say come on kids you know better and if you do it do it quietly. I have a Street Rod Nationals sticker on my tool box when it was held in Sioux Falls, SD in the 80's.
