Blake is an inspiration for any young kid who feels light headed when they see, hear, or smell classic cars around them. I went to school with Blake @ McPherson college. Its exciting to see a classmate succeed the way he has. He had an idea of what he wanted, & he’s now taken a special build to SEMA in Vegas.

In Paul Russell’s own words, “He is a consummate craftsman”. Chris and I were in the McPherson College Auto Restoration Program together, and he was above superb talent even then. He deserves to be recognized for his talent and skill.

For years, Luke has been teaching students the art and science of restoration. His dedication to excellence in teaching and preservation of history spreads his considerable knowledge and skills to future restorers. This has a geometric effect, producing many more restorers who will secure our automotive legacy and future.
