As far back as I can remember ... I was being driven around in my father's Model T delivery truck. My father had restored the Model T for my grandfather in the 1950's, so being a Model T enthusiast came to me very early.
Being a member of most of the local model T and antique car clubs, I started to do a little bit of wood work for other Model T collectors, such as - truck beds, fire walls, and floor boards. I also started building commercial bodies for my own T chassis.
It was easy for me, being a builder and cabinetmaker, to incorporate my love for the hobby with my experience in the trades.
