My friend sent me this video of hurricane Harvey and it reminded me how crazy and in danger we were in... So I was laying dry watching the news, when someone on FB desperately posted that she needed help - stating that the water was raising fast in their home and that her grandpa was disabled in bed and the water was almost up to him! I didn’t know them, but I knew I had to do something.
For a second I panicked bc I didn’t know what to do, but I remembered my brothers from another mother Majid Siddiqui and Wajid Siddiqui that had 2 lifted trucks. When I told them about the crazy mission in the other side of town, they didn’t ask why or hesitate, but they said they were on my way to pick me up.
We completed the Mission of rescuing this family from their flooded home, but there was even more drama the video doesn’t show.
So we finally arrived at the shelter to drop the family off, but the dang shelter was being evacuated as it was flooding! Having 2 lifted trucks, we invited as many people as we could to jump in the back of the trucks and we hauled away with 6-8 families. Man o man that was something else. Regardless to say, we finally got them safely to a dry shelter. #MissionAccomplishedAndThenSome
Anyways, thinking back, I put my friends in a lot of danger two days in a row. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart not only for being there for me, but for helping other Houstonians when they need it.
I would do it all over again, and I know my friends would too.
It's great to see trucks at a show and ogle at the finished product. But the buildup is also super interesting. It takes a ton of work to do a full custom. Take a peek behind the curtain of a truck in progress.
