CRUISIN': Military man loves trucks
In Aug. 30 issue, Russell County News
By Ron Cowell, Columnist

Wesley Brewster in a young man from Russell Springs now serving in the Military and is stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Not only is he defending our country with time in Iraq but is also a lover of cars and trucks and has built one on the sharpest trucks in the area.

While serving in Iraq Wesley had a two week leave and was home here in Russell Springs. He spotted a truck for sale and decided that was the truck for him. He purchased the truck on April 1st, 2007. The story of the truck begins there.

The first thing Wesley did was take his truck and had the windows tinted and put a Clarion 7" flip up DVDCD unit, with 3 Memphis audio 10"comp sub woofers. He added a Memphis Audio comp amp to give him the sound he wanted.

After that he was headed back to Iraq. While there he thought about his truck back home and what all he wanted to do with it. With the help of his Papaw, Ben Popplewell he was able to get his truck built like he wanted it from Iraq. 

Wesley is a true car lover. He would send money home to his Papaw from Iraq and his Grandpa would take the truck and have the things done for Wesley that he wanted done and over see the project for him.
All I can say is Mr. Popplewell must be a true car guy also to do all that for his grandson. It's obvious he loves his grandson very much also.

Here is a list of things that Wesley had done while in Iraq.  He had a Flowmaster dual exhaust put on the truck, a rollpan was added and then 20" Boss Motorsport Rims with Kohmu tires, Nothing but the best for his truck.

He added a DJM lowering kit and a bed cover. He then had another family member get into the act. He ordered some after market head lights, tail lights, and a third brake light that was installed by his cousin Troy Popplewell.  Troy also installed the racing seats and the bed rug.
One of the sharpest things you notice on the truck is the Lambo doors.

 That was the first thing that caught my eye. He also has added a front bumper, grill, side mirrors, and a Viper alarm system. There is a cool air intake and performance chip been added also.

Wesley has been home on leave and was able to show his truck at the Ole Boys Toys Car show in July and August of this year. He is very proud that his truck took first place as best truck both months.

This is truly a sharp truck. Wesley wanted to be sure to thank his Grandpa and other family members for helping him make his dream truck come to life. Wesley said he still has a lot to do on the truck and wants to improve the interior.

Thanks Wesley for not only giving us one sharp truck to see but for serving the country for our freedom. Good luck in the future with your truck.

Also taking place Sunday August 17th was the Middle Tennessee Ford Dealers Antique Car Show that was held in Lebanon TN.

 Several Car club members from Russell County got together and headed to the show at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center.

Congratulations to Dwayne and Mike Esau of the Outsiders for taking first place in the Modified division. Neil and Maralee Patton took second place in the Corvette division. Dut Wilson and Tom Bernardi also won trophys.

This will be the Outsiders last cruise in and they have over $350.00 worth of prizes to be won that night, some good oldies music and a lot of classic cars to see. Hope to see you there.
