MEET THE HOBBY’S ALLIES
U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) is a longtime U.S. Senate co-chair of the SEMA-supported Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus. For him, turning wrenches is all about one thing—family. When he’s not in Washington, D.C., Sen. Tester and his son, Shon, can be found on their family’s Montana farm working on one of their many collector cars. Included in their collection is a Ford Model T, Ford Model A, ’38 Chevy, ’48–’53 Willy’s Jeep, ’56 Buick Century, ’55 Chevy Stepside pickup, and ’70 Buick Electra.
