Mechanic sees no end for long term project.

Lloyd Estes takes a break from working on his 1949 Chevrolet 3100 Monday at his home in Murphysboro. Estes said the only formal training he had in car maintenance was in high school, and most of his education has come from hands-on experience. “Take it apart, put it back together. How hard is it?” Estes said.  Estes purchased his truck in 1981 at an auction. “I gave $150 for this old truck,” he said. Estes said the truck is now worth $2500, and he does not think he will ever be finished with the truck but always finds things to work on.
