ROLE: all. the. things.
Hey Ya'll! My name is Amy, I am a girl mom (times two), married to one of my favorite guys, a daughter, a Jesus follower and so much more. I love preworkout and a great sweat, I collect books like trophies, I love to cook but hate a dirty kitchen. I love grungy country music, bell bottom pants, turquoise (the mineral) and converses. We are based out of Georgia!
I have always been interested in trucks, outdoor stuff (offroading, fishing, and more). My parents raised me 'well rounded', I would hang with the boys and "doll" up for church, pageants, and more with the girls.
Growing up, my dad had two old gasser Ford, a '76 and a '74; one was his full blown 'have fun truck', you know, the one he was not afraid to drop in a mud hole, the other was more of his 'Sunday Driver', he would spend hours waxing and working on it. I remember on when he would take the headers off of it, it was so loud, I am sure the neighbors hated us! My love for trucks really began with those two trucks, the "Green Lizzard" and "Big Red", they were "my" trucks, and I begged my dad for us to "fix up" the "Green Lizzard" when I got my learners and license.
After I graduated high school, my dad began to get more interested in diesels. At the time, and even currently, had a '99 Dodge Cummins, which was his work truck. (That truck is still going strong, and has over 600,000 miles on it- you read that right!) He began the hunt for a twelve valve. He found a truck out of Westminister, South Carolina, he turned it into a pulling truck for the 'pro street' classes here around us, it is a truck to beat, BoomShockaLocka. That wasn't enough though, he dreamed of something faster, a truck he could pull in the more competitive classes all around the nation. He found a truck for sale that had actually been in the Diesel Power Competition, but has completely transformed it into something that is a force to be reckoned with, BOOYAH!.
I say all this to lead me here, through attending pulls and drag races with my family, I began taking pictures of the pullers and their runs, and that is how I became more and more involved in this community.
I later purchased my own diesel, a 2004 F350 Powerstroke. This has been my baby, one of the best 6Liters I have ever seen. My dad about made me start parking it at the road when I came over to his house, "Cummins Only"!
I began Diesel Doll in hopes to see more women find a community in which they belong. I know how it is to feel like an outsider, like you don't belong becuase of your interests, and I wanted a place to support other women in the diesel industry.
Through my photography, I have been published in several major publications, including Diesel World, Full Pull Magazine and more. Through that I was reminded of my love for writing, that is how Diesel Doll has become a blog, featuring women in the industry, products we like, and so much more. I also run a personal blog called The Kent Krew, I would love for you to check it out, too!
