Burning Dirt

Hard Work Pays Off

With the state our economy is in today, garage fabrication is becoming even more popular. The days of spending $100,000 on your off-road ride aren't over, but have been reserved for the truly wealthy. At the young age of 20, Ryan Danielson cut, bent, and welded nearly every piece of metal you see on his '05 Chevrolet Silverado. Where does a 20-year-old learn to do this? Like father, like son. He and his father hand-built a four-seat buggy in their garage preparing Ryan with the necessary skills he would need to tackle his Chevy project truck. With a loaded resume of experience and currently enrolled at ASU for electrical engineering, we can only imagine what will come rolling out of Ryan's garage next.
