 What I have found is that the enjoyment of a project is not in the end. The exciting part is laying in bed at night and dreaming and thinking about it…It was exciting when they’d have to problem-solve and fix it, not when they got to finish it, not when they got done with it.

MEET THE MAN, THE OPA

Our project named “Opa” arose out from a Grandpa, Mel Lee Ellenwood, with Stage 4 cancer (aka Opa) eager to see his grandson learn craftsmanship and mechanics. Our RodRides Community Built ’35 Chevy Truck was in his barn and when he decided to sell his truck to RodRides, we jumped at the chance.

We took the opportunity to sit down with Mel and get to know the amazing man behind our current RodRides Community Built project.
