The Breeze
Easy for a First-Timer
Phil Gordon
We all have that moment of epiphany or focused clarity. That one moment when you feel something and it guides you to happiness. It’s possible to go through half of your life before hitting that moment when everything makes sense and you’re brought back to your course. Warren Stiehler was a muscle car enthusiast but always felt like something was missing. “I loved the speed and feel of a fast car,” Warren tells Truckin, “I just felt like something was missing though.” His moment of clarity came when he accompanied his good friend Fred to a show in Ohio. A full Saturday walking around looking at ’bagged trucks, Warren felt his moment. On the way home, he turned to his friend Fred and uttered one line that changed his life, “I’m building a ’bagged truck!”

Of course, finding a truck to build becomes one of the hardest and most timely tasks for any builder. The very next day, Warren found an ’87 GMC R10 pickup about two hours from his house. “The GMC was basically a body with an engine sitting in it,” Warren adds, “Even my dad told me this was going to be a difficult project.” Difficult wasn’t something that would deter Warren, so the truck was loaded on a flatbed and brought home for the start of “The Breeze.”
