History, Inspiration, or other Backstory about your build

Those of us that build/modify diecast cars are a pretty close group. Always trying to out-do one another but more than willing to share talents and help each other. That is how this started. My good friend Richard Olheiser contacted me looking for some help making a grill for a project truck. My Holley shop truck quickly became the mock-up truck and the ideas started flowing. One thing led to another and before we knew it I also had Richards truck on my bench to apply some of the mods we had dreamed up. Richard didn’t want the slammed look and I did, so as I thought about it I figured out how I could accomplish the look of a truck with air-bags to be posed up or down. With my plans for this year I figured Richard would easily complete his truck before me. This being 2020, everyone’s plans changed. Hoping to see Richard’s truck soon!
