This is Ryan, and he’s a pretty amazing kid. Ever since he was a little guy he was fascinated by anything with a steering wheel.
When Ryan turned 10, his dad pointed to the 1954 Chevy truck sitting in the driveway and declared, “The truck is now yours.” This truck had been in the family since Ryan’s dad was 10 years old.
Needless-to-say, Ryan exploded with excitement. Immediately, he began learning all about the truck, even how to drive a stick on the column. Together, over a three-year period Ryan and his father worked nights and weekends to restore the truck. “He is truly a car guy,” says his dad, “He even read the CPP catalog and placed many of the orders for the necessary parts.”
Now that Ryan has finished his ’54 Chevy truck, he and his dad are preparing to restore his grandmother's '66 convertible mustang. This, of course, is another project and a story for another time.
We at CPP wish every kid could experience the joy of restoring his or her favorite truck or car. If you and your little motor-head are working on a project together, let us know.
