SPE­CIAL THANKS FROM THE OWNER: “This project couldn’t have come to­gether if it weren’t for great peo­ple. Thank you to my wife and her ex­treme pa­tience with me as well as her help­ing hands. Thanks to Paul Devries who told me we could save another one from the crusher.

(He never men­tioned how much it would cost though.) Thanks to my fa­ther who told me never to be­come a me­chanic, Scott Miller for the count­less hours he spent in my shop work­ing and drink­ing cof­fee, Jim Wild­goose of Wild­goose Per­for­mance, Shawn Pat­ter­son of S&P Mo­tor­sports, Char­lie Schafer of CSI Rac­ing, Trevor Bezzina for his tal­ent putting paint through a gun, and all of my bud­dies who kept ask­ing me when the truck was go­ing to be done—thank you.”
