My husband has his own art form - Restoration!
 
He has restored other old vehicles, but his pride and joy is his 1964 Chevrolet Step-Side Long Bed Truck.  While I don't share his obsession for this "art", I can't help loving his enthusiasm for it!

This is what The Precious looked like before...
Sure.  It ran...but mostly, it sat!

I don't know all the technical stuff...
But Gary has redone everything - new engine, converted manual to auto tranny, new red oak bed, tons of body work.  I could have a new body with all the work he's put into The Precious! LOL

Ratty old wood...
Can wood actually be moth-eaten?  It's amazing to see how time and the elements breaks down the cellular structure.  Wow, this wood was as old me!!!  I hope I have weathered the elements better than this!
