"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... I have known it all of its life, and loved it from day one. My uncle Paul bought this classic in 1962, after he returned from military service. I was only 12 at the time. I teased him for years about selling me the car because I loved it. My fondest memories of my uncle and his Chevy were when he would spiff up his car and drive it to Sunday dinners at our home (and of course take me for a ride). When my uncle passed away in 2003, I inherited the car."
