We asked Scott what he would do different and what he liked doing most on the truck. "I wouldn't have changed anything we did on the Chevy. I enjoyed working alongside my boys, and now I use the truck as a daily driver to and from work," he says. "The change of scenery was a welcome around here, and I loved working on the truck so much I picked up a Chevy Nomad for my next project."
