Mike Feathers from Sioux City has found his passion, and he is fully embracing it.
For the last 24 years he has been fixing up old military vehicles dating all the way back to Vietnam even World War Two.
Sometimes he finds them word of mouth or off the Internet, which is not always an easy task.
"With the Internet, it's good and bad, it's easier to find stuff; however, when people have something they either know partially what they have and have wacky ideas about the value of it," said Feathers.
Over the years, he has fixed over a dozen military Jeeps, motorcycles and trucks but does not always bring them back to mint condition.
In fact, he likes to leave a little history to them and a little wear and tear.
"There's still some possibility to figure out where it was, who was driving it, what they did with it. Some of those things are lost. As soon as you make it perfect, it's just another perfect one," Feathers said.
Currently, Mike is working on a 1958 Russian motorcycle and has four other military vehicles on display at the Sioux City Public Museum.
"I like to let everyone see this stuff and enjoy it, and I think that's the right thing to do," Feathers said. "I've had times where all this stuff is in storage and no one ever sees it. That's pretty silly actually."
Mike hopes to have the motorcycle fixed up in a couple weeks so it can be added to the museum display.
But he said before he sends it off, he is going to take it for a ride on the town.
