However that impact extended beyond his immediate family, also. 2/25 "I can remember riding in the [Bel Air] with my uncle when I was a kid. At that time, it had a four-speed Muncie in it. He would let me move the equipments for him when he took me out from time to time.
The vehicle sat for 13 years before he finally sold it to me for $2,000 that was a great deal of money back then (1990 ). Since that time I have actually owned the '55 for 25 years20 of that it sat in my daddy's garage. I could have easily offered it a minimum of 50 times but I constantly hung on to it with big hopes of building it to the cars and truck it is today."
