White Shadow

A shadow is a dark area produced by light. It takes that light to create a shadow, almost the same as it takes a unique idea to create a masterpiece. For Brownsburg, Indiana, resident Jonn Farr, a commercial building manager, he can see the potential in almost anything. Growing up, his father had a fleet of old vehicles, including Volkswagen vans, MGs, Volvos, and Porsche. Jonn and his father enjoyed going to auto shows together and developed a strong bond.

Sometime during his high school years, Jonn’s attention turned to trucks. “I saw a lowered truck at a show,” Jonn says. “I knew from that day forward, I would have a truck addiction the rest of my life.” As a teenager, he would often help his father in the garage tinkering with brake jobs and other mechanical repair. That’s where Jonn’s learning began.

He continued to own trucks, but as his family grew to include three kids and a wife, he set his sights on a larger more family friendly truck. He asked his friend Alex if he would sell him his 1999 Chevy 3500, which had already begun a custom transformation. “The work was good, and I liked the direction it was going,” Jonn says.

Although Alex did the framework himself, BBT performed all the underhood tin work and door caps, and Little Shop perfectly molded the dashboard and rear fenders. Jonn has a ton more touches he plans to add. Though his White Shadow Chevy is already turning heads in the truck community. Jonn wishes to thank his wife Lorie for her patience, and Alex Steelsmith for initially starting White Shadow. A special thanks goes to 3 Day Jay, Rob Robertson, Kevin Jarboe, and Chris McMahon. White Shadow will be casting its light very soon.
