So recently i was given my grandpas old car. It has been sitting at my uncles ranch under a tarp, and with much negotiation he agreed to give it to me. The story is, my grandpa was given a high profile job for the government overseeing the desighning of new nuclear missle silos for the government under JFK in preperation for the cold war, and his team was stationed in Denver Colorado. The year, 1962. He took his rather large governemnt paycheck down to the biggest chevy dealership and bought a new car for the second time in his life (the first being my grandmas, 56 buick wagon, she got what she wanted first, always). My grandpa with some looking around fell in love with a car the dealer had custom ordered for himself and had just been delivered that day. After much debate and convincing on my grandpas part, he drove away with the owners brand new 1962 Impala Super Sport Convertable, custom ordered in the Gold Anniversary paint. The car was a family car until his death about 9 years ago, when my uncles inherited it and left it at his ranch under a few tarps. Now its mine, and im taking it and restoring it to 100% original condition. No 20 inch wheels, no tinted window, no massive stereo system, just old school style. Anyone have a story like this of gettign a family members car? let us know.
