All Throttle, No Bottle!!!
Hi, My name is Nathan. Iím an ASE cert. tech. in Dallas Texas. An avid Hot Rod nut like the rest of you, I am a member of Pickupsnpanels of North Texas, a club focused around GM trucks and panels, 1970 and lower. I have a shop in Northwest Dallas and work on everything except toasters (which really would be much easier to fix). OK It just feels like I work on everything under the sun! Iím trying to work myself into specializing in restoring older trucks (I specifically prefer but am not limited to 1960-66 GM) and "Rat rods" I was into the simple, unfinished black primered, "run what you brung" look long before this trend that has developed over the past couple of years (and is gaining popularity) was widely recognized. (Shows are starting to include a class for this and it really opens the door to those of us how cant throw down the platinum card and spend $50,000- $100,000+ for a finished out piece of jewelry sittiní on rubber, not that I have anything against that; just donít have the funds to be a member of that club.) I have several trucks of my own. In my stable currently are a 62, 63, 64, 65, 72, and 73 pickups and just acquired a 65-suburban/ panel. I currently am working on several projects. One is a street rod/ Pro street style 65 truck and the other is a more ambitious 64 Crew cab 4 door long bed phantom Pro street dually. I have a website at ValentineAutomotive.com that tell more about what I do and me, any one is free to visit if interested.
