To finish off the build, Steve added the wrap around rain guards, vent shades, pull down bumper guard, banjo wheel and 48 T- Bar that he had accumulated over the years. Jason Jaramillo of the Bomb Shelter in Sun Valley, CA added an Alpine CD Player and two 6X9 speakers, so Steve could play his favorite oldies while cruising with his San Fernando Valley-based club, the Pachuco Car Club.
Steve credits and thanks his father, Steve Hernandez Sr., for the success of the restoration of the car. He would also like to thank the rest of his family as well as his kids for their support. We all know if you don't have the support of your family; it is more difficult to complete a project. After all of the time and money put into the Fleetline, we doubt Steve will sell it to build another one. This one is a keeper!
