@Nelllsterr and @Liam_GMC have a good think going. They have recently started a new shop "Kennie's Kustoms" and love working on old classic trucks.
Nelly Marie - remembers going to shows and swap meets with her dad when she was a kid and she shared her fathers enthusiasm. The passion was rekindled when she got a classic truck that had some fuel issues. Those fuel issues led her to Liam. Liam loved trucks, but unfortunately his dad passed away when he was a kid. Thankfully his Uncle has stepped in many a time to help guide Liam through his life.
Nelly is as big of a Liam fan as he is her, together they have something special, and they like to keep it all in perspective.
Good people, Good Music, Good Beer, Cool Trucks! Life's good in Canada.
Thanks for your time guys and I look forward to what comes out of the new Shop.

Zaak Delbridge beats to his own drum and is totally fine with that. Zaak chose a 1962 C10 for his daily and then decided he would tear up the Hoonigan Burn Yard recently and winning the coveted "King of the Yard" trophy and the $5K purse SSS.
The story doesn't start or end there! Zaak lives life to the fullest and has been through a ton of shit. He knows every day is a blessing and lives his life that way. We're glad he's doing it in a C10!

Thanks Zaak for your time, and sharing your story with the C10 Nation, Ronnie.

Keith worked on the "Truck Line" in the Flint Michigan from 1980-85, building C10 Trucks. Keith even followed his own truck down the line.
They were building one truck a minute back then, Damn Son!
Keith ended up switching jobs, multiple times over his 40 year career, but the line was his first.
Thanks for walking us down memory lane Keith.

Jeff Martin, like most of us had a passion very early on for cars and trucks. He also did't have a silver spoon, so he learned how to hustle and work. When he wanted something, he know he'd have to learn how to do it himself - well fiberglass and carbon fiber was the same - a lot of learning, getting better and upgrading cars and trucks. He started on a Ford Falcon and hasn't really looked back.
Thanks for your time - Jeff and good luck with everything in the future. RW

Mark Giambalvo from Creative Rod and Kustom has built three of the baddest C10's we've seen over the last 5 years.
Meeting him at SEMA with the 1968 they built in 2016, then again in 2018 with the "blue" '68 C10, and then this year with the 1965 C10 I knew we had a very talented builder on our hands.
From Riddler Great 8, multiple GM Performance awards, and recent recipient of the GoodGuys "Trendsetter" award.
Mark, his team and his partner in crime (Wife Heather) are not only amazing builders, but just great hardworking people. They will be building top level stuff for a long time coming and we look forward to seeing what comes out of the shop each and every time. Thanks Mark.
