Four rusted, worn out tricycles from Bell-Whitley/Yellow Creek Head Start, seemed to be doomed for the dump. Ron Hyatt, owner of Pineville’s Custom Paint and Auto Repair helped to give them new life.
Employees Dustin Hyatt and Tyler Parks donated their time and expertise to make these tricycles better than brand new.
The volunteers were happy to give energy and 130 volunteer hours to benefit the 40 children that attend Bell-Whitley/Yellow Creek Head Start. A donation from Steve Smith at Car Quest gave the tricycles a fresh coat of paint to match their farm equipment and motorcycle decals.
The tricycles went from rust to bright colors of John Deere, Massey Ferguson and Caterpillar.
Hyatt and Parks took a special interest in one of the tricycles. They welded on a pretend gas tank and replaced the worn handles bars with that of a real motorcycle.
