"Dirk" His custom Sonoma "Sempiternal" surviving the 2019 Texas floods


BUILT TO CRUISE EPISODE #21 Hear Derek "Dirk" Belt tell the story of his full custom Sonoma "Sempiternal" and how it transformed into the showstopper and magazine cover truck it is today.

Sempiternal has been featured on the cover of All Time Low Magazine and was recently photographed for Truckin Magazine as well.

Derek tells the story of growing up in a country town and striving to be different. While others were riding horses and tending farms, Derek was busy building and enjoying custom trucks.

During the tropical storm Imelda, the Texas coast received record rainfall and flooding much like it did during Hurricane Harvey during 2017. This flooding impacted Derek and his wife, claiming their new car, and coming close to claiming Derek's full custom Sonoma.

Despite the setbacks from the storm, Derek and his wife continue to customize their vehicles and be different from the norm. In small town Texas, they are definitely one of a kind.
