My Dad I suppose. He always wanted to build a 55-57 Chevy truck, but never had the time or money. Not much extra money for peanut farmers. He paid for me to build my first ride, which oddly enough was a 57 Chevy truck I still have. He helped me when he had time and helped me figure out how to do everything. He has still never bought or built a project car or truck of his own.
