    Hello all the name is Roger and I'm a 15 year Army Vet. Joined the Army in 1992 and would of spent more time in if I wasn't medically retired for PTSD. Anyways, I have a great wife of 17 years and 2 great sons. Like most guys I love toys and I had my share. I currently have a 1966 EL Camino that I have been working on and seems like it never ends when it comes to working on these classics as everyone knows. I just recently in the last 10 months started entering car shows, I have been to about 13 car shows in 10 months and won 8 trophies and 2 plaques. I love seeing all these classic cars when I go. It's amazing how some put so much money into them. A little about my '66 EL Camino is that I have always loved the EL Camino since I was a child. Some of the things I have done to it so far are engine overhaul, new tires and crager wheels, roll on bed liner, new flowmaster exhaust, new classic cassette stereo, AC repair, new carpet, re-apolstered seats, completely redone interior including weather stripping, door handles inside and out, new window cranks, new locks including ignition locks, replaced stearing wheel, custom tool box painted two tone like the truck, replaced 90% of trim including new bed rails, replaced 50% new emblems, new dash cover, painted the interior myself, installed speaker system, new bumpers front and back, also the paint job was done in a barn! Runs like a champ! Thanks for looking...

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
