The Spice of Life
Familiar can be boring
I’ve always marveled at people who change things up in their life just because. They’re ready for what’s next and jump with both feet; they’ve done this, now they want to try that. I’m the type to stick with what I know, while a good friend of mine isn’t afraid to branch out and own a ’63 Nova wagon, ’68 GMC, MKI VW Golf, C3 Vette, ’02 Lincoln or a ’82 C10. The guy is open to explore, to tinker, and to move on; something we should all consider.
Lance Nguyen is of a similar vein, having worked over a few Hondas, a ’37 Chevy, a Model A, a ’96 Silverado and a Ford F1, and his latest masterpiece is this 1959 Chevy pickup. While some won’t be able to find a method to the madness and may conclude Lance can’t make up his mind, I think a benefit to owning a wide variety of vehicles is the education these guys are getting. They’re versed on the finer points of design from a variety of manufacturing, and undoubtedly have a wider set of problem solving skills than folks who remain allegiant to one brand. Those who dare to venture can take inspiration from all over the world, and their project vehicles reflect it.
