'94 GMC Part I

[SR2011-05]

In the second build of Search & Restore, we travel to Pomeroy, OH, to meet Anthony, who commutes to his job at the penitentiary in a worn-out '94 GMC Sierra. Rusted through, it's his daily driver. But fixing up the 4x4 is a distant second to raising his two biological, and five adopted, children. Search & Restore to the rescue!
