The Accessory Dream Guide Issue 5


When we posted on the Truck Enthusiasts’ Facebook page that we were looking for a member who always helps others in the Truck Community, many people voted for Ron Davis of Calgary. Here is his story: “Thank you so much for the honour of being part of this. I have been working on cars and trucks for many years. I became a Red Seal auto tech- nician in 1990 after 4 years as an Alberta-based Apprentice. I worked as a Shop Forman directly out of school and helped raise the shop’s business from below average to very busy. I left there to work at an engine building shop, Cetus Auto, for 17 years and I love doing stock and modified rebuilds and accessories. I moved from there to a GM dealer- ship and have been there for 6 years as a Grand Master Technician. I spent a few years as crew for an IMCA stock car until the 2 local tracks closed down.

I love helping people with their vehicles no matter what it may be. I find it very humbling that others have voted for me for this honour. I never thought I made that much of an

impact on people. I co -founded and co-run a truck group called Rocky Mountain Trucks. We have stayed small and friendly for 4 years. I am a member of the Show Your Ride For Brandon Group’s board. I’m also in many of the local car and truck groups and will offer advice and information if asked. If anyone feels like starting a new group or having a car show and shine, go for it. Ask for advice from others and put your heart into it no matter the outcome. I’d rather give 110% and fail than not try and know that outcome.”

Ron drives a 2016 Ram 1500 Sport which, naturally, is a work in progress. It’s a beautiful ride that keeps evolving. Follow Ron on Instagram @diffduck to see more of this build.
