“There is a pride and satisfaction (in restoring a car), knowing that I built that with my hands… the hard hours you put into it, the all-nighters, but when it’s all done it’s like, ‘Yeah my time was worth it in the end!”

“I’m not building this so that I can just sit there and look at it and hear it run. I want to drive this down the coast, I want to take this places… take it out and show it off.”
