Classic Style

Enduring and spanning generations.


This website celebrates an American tradition – the Classic Pickup. Having been around for over 100 hundred years, there is no vehicle more American
than the pickup truck. It all began when farmers and tradesmen strapped boxes and crates on the back of cars in order to haul all types of cargo.
In 1925, Ford manufactured a pickup truck for the general public by integrating a steel bed, adjustable tailgate, and heavy-duty rear suspension springs onto the Model T substructure, beginning the evolution of the Classic Pickup.

Project Update

It has been a long while since I did an update on the Scout II Project. That is because until the last month there hasn’t been any work done on it. Various work and family related projects took over. But now we are back working hard on it.

First I decided to call her Heidi after Heidi Montag. By the time I get done with her, she is going to have as many operations performed on her as the her namesake had done in one day.

Now for the update. Please watch the video for the progress on this project.
