I grew up on a farm In Grand Island and have basically been into tinkering since I could hold a wrench. I've installed air ride on everything from Model A’s, 40-50’s cars and trucks, many 1967-72 C10’s and 1958-64 Impalas. I have completed numerous LS swaps, both fuel injected and carb setups. I love anything old and vintage that is a throwback to a time I believe I should have been born in. I especially love Flathead motors, Model A’s and all the Hot Rod history that has proceeded us in time.
