SCRUB-BUILDS VOLUME 2: DRU BILT 1980 TOYOTA PICKUP
- Why you built it
In my automotive career, I have built and have been a part of an assortment of different platforms. The one platform I never tried building was something old or classic. Old Toyota trucks are something I respect and have always appreciated. Which is why I chose to build a 1980 Toyota pickup!
- What it means to you
I enjoy the old school feel of driving around classic vehicles. It's unbeatable, the idea that you are keeping something alive is so rewarding. It's also about the experiences, memories, and likeminded people you meet along the journey.
- A memorable place your vehicles taken you.
The one memorable place my pickup has taken me, was high up in the Mountains of GreenWater, WA to a lookout spot where one of the first dates my significant other and I had when we first met. 5 years later we went to the same lookout, and I proposed to my Fiance.
