So, this truck was the first vehicle I ever purchased by myself at 20 years old. I was very proud of that, no cosigner, my own money, my own deal.

Then just two short years later, I was married and had a baby on the way and needed more room.

I traded my truck to my dad for his extended cab that he was currently driving. He didn’t have to do it but he did it for me and for my daughter.

My dad kept the truck that entire time and fast forward to 2021 when my dad passed, he made sure I got the truck back.

Ever since, I’ve been restoring it and upgrading it as a rolling memorial for my dad. These images show just a fraction of the work I have done. Next is going to be paint and the Silverado badges on the side will be replaced with images of his dog tags.
