12-24-2009 08:18 AM Background: why I am here
I got started late in life on the Hotrodders journey when I fell in love with the 58/59 model year Chevy Task Force truck from a picture in a magazine, typical right? I hardly knew anything about these trucks and nothing about rebuilding one, but I had to have one from the first time I saw one in person at a local car show, so my hunt began. In the spring of 1999 my girlfriend saw "an old truck" at her work often, it was owned by the parking lot attendant at the restaurant she worked for at the time, and she kept asking him if he wanted to sell it, one day he said yes, and down I went to see the truck; honestly it was already a done deal in my mind.

Long story short, the truck is a '59 1/2 ton Chevy pickup, yes I married the girl, we had a daughter and we are now getting divorced; but I still have the truck. It has been over 10 years since i first got the truck and knew nothing about hotrodding, engines, restoration, auto electrical, etc - I was green but I was determined.
