I’ve known Rhett Holley and the rest of The Butcher Chop boys going on about four years now. Their shop is located in Danville, Virginia. In fact, you may have heard of Danville but didn’t know it. Johnny Cash sang about the place in “The Wreck of The Old 97.” Danville is where Old 97 jumped off the track.
Between Rhett, Big Will, and Jason Hancock there isn’t much that The Butcher Chop boys don’t get done or do in-house at their shop. Rhett and the rest of the boys in Danville are all good as gold in my book. You don’t find many like them anymore. Each of them would drop anything to help a friend out no matter what. The “Tater Digger” here is a terrific example of what I mean when I say The Butcher Chop can do all the work in-house.
This chopper wasn't much to look at on day one. I don't mean it was ugly. I mean there wasn't a whole lot here. Just a frame, ’75 FL motor, and basket case of a transmission. The Butcher Chop rectified the hell out of the situation though. They spent two months creating Tater Digger for the Ray Price Motorsports Expo Invitational in Raleigh, North Carolina. With the help of Big Will and Jason Rhett, they were able to get everything done and ready in time for the show. The Tater Digger turned out to be a strong runner that handles great at all speeds and is a blast to rip around on any terrain it’s handed.
A man once said, “A sculptor needs clay. A film director needs an army.” Rhett didn't have quite that many people in his corner, but without The Butcher Chop crew, his wife, and his daughters, his ideas, visions, and builds would never happen.
