Alex, Mike and Wayne are joined by the 83yo Legendary Ozarks Gig Maker, Ray Hastings from Doniphan, Missouri. Ray talks about his life growing up just after the Depression to his travels to St. Louis to build the now sought after 55-57 Chevy's!  Then we dig into the Heart of his Passion of becoming a Master Gig Maker.
