1926 Chevy

I bought this car a bit ago from my boss after her father passed away. It had been restored in the late 80's but had sat in his neighbors garage since then. I always told him when he was ready to sell it I wanted to be 1st in line. I was close a few years back but when his wife passed he just couldn't part with it. It was a project that he his wife and their neighbor restored. Well after he passed Jody felt it was only right that I got it. We agreed on a price and I brought it home.
 Over the past bit I've gone through it and fixed all the issues it had from sitting. I've gotten it going pretty good and a few months ago a good friend of mine's sister asked if I could bring it to her wedding. I was more than happy do to that so I loaded it up today and went out there for them. 
  They rode in it from the main building to the area where the service was held then back to the reception area. It ran great and I thought it would be a neat idea for her brother to drive it instead of me. I gave him a crash course on out to operate it and turned him loose. He was thrilled to get to drive it and I got a kick out of the enjoyment they all got out of it.
 
 Here are a few videos I took. Nothing long but it shows the car and such. The first on is the former owners daughter and her husband and daughter the second is my buddy Calvin and the bride and groom. The last one is him driving his family to the ceremony.

Beautiful....a picture is worth a thousand words and a video with sound is priceless.  It's especially nice when you can share with others.

Very nice video of this. i enjoyed watching it.I think when you restore an old car from a friend or family member who passed away it takes on a more personal meaning than just buying one.

In the second video the owners daughter is the one in the blue dress in the front seat. Just seeing that smile as they drove by was worth it.

I just posted a photo in the form of the dodge i bought from my brother in-laws estate. He owned it 50 years was married 50 years and had no children to leave it to. His wife my sister in-law passed away 5 weeks after he did. i joined the form last Saturday and needed help with a tire issue. The form was a great help.
