Another Wild Ride - Congratulations from Cole House Design!

Home Stager with Cole House Design

Most people don't know this, but I grew up in a car builder household.  Heck, my first car was a black 1968 Camaro with a chrome undercarriage and a wheelie bar in the back (just in case you wanted it to stand on end - LOL).  My weekends were spent helping my father build cars (I was the girl passing the wrench, screwdriver, etc.), hanging out at junk yards looking for parts, doing a lot of washing and waxing, listening to 50's music, and going to car shows. 

My father has owned and built so many legendary vehicles over the years, I have honestly lost count.  I have had my favourites, and I was always sad when they were sold.  However, my father is always keen to start a new project.  I swear he has design ideas for the next vehicle before he even buys it, thus he doesn't keep vehicles long.  Mind you I have to say I'm the same with buying and selling houses!

Over the years many people have asked where I get the "design gene" from, and what prompted Cole House Design.  I come from a long line of hard working individuals, but they were all teachers, farmers, coal miners, etc.  So from what my father refers to as "just a hobby"...came my design sense, my creativity, and my drive to turn something that was once plain and boring into something beautiful and inspiring.   

So, congratulations to my father, Mr. Ed McLean on his wins at the 2009 Performance World car show held at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario on March 13th through 15th.  With his 1951 Nash wagon displayed just inside the front doors...he was awarded "Best Custom", "Best Engineered Vehicle", and the prestigious "Bruce Award" in honour of legendary car enthusiast Mr. Bruce Robertson.  Way to go Dad!
