As my tool collection grew, I began to run out of places to mount utility hooks in to the walls & doors of my Econoline Van. I found myself once again on the search for a bigger vehicle and ended up purchasing a 1991 Ford Box Truck that I found for sale on Craigslist.

Once I started doing remodeling work, it didn’t take long for me to realize that there had to be a better vehicle to work out of than the 1998 Ford Taurus I had at the time. So I got online and started looking for a van that I could pick up for around a grand. In this week’s video I give you a personal tour of the work van that got the Utica remodeling party started.

One day I was taking a side street through a busy part of town to avoid traffic when I spotted an old 1979 Flat bed Ford truck parked in front of a house.

Here is the first of many photo shoots that will be available on thinkpierce.com. In the previous version of thinkpierce.com, the photo gallery was a big part of the site and it will be in the new version as well. The photo shoots are a great way to depict something funny or creative under the Thinkpierce umbrella. In addition to new photo shoots like this one, I’ll also be re-introducing a smorgasbord of previous Thinkpierce photo shoots as well, each one with an inspiration all their own. This particular shoot titled “The Cruiser”, came about because up and coming photographer Sara Christian asked me to pose as an “angry customer” for a photo that was to be part of a school assignment.
