I would like to thank my daughters, Sydney and Jayna, for their excitement and the Petie nickname, which kept me motivated. DaRhonda, Mason, and Bryce, for the endless trial and error on the paint color. My parents, Richard and Diane, because after years of watching and helping dad paint cars, I guess I picked up something. On a final note, the truck is dedicated to the memory of my grandfather, Donald Parsley, who was very instrumental in making me a gearhead.
