Car nut Bob Whitter from Yulee, Fla., has been enjoying and collecting cars for about 40 years, so when his close friend wanted to restore and upgrade his 1957 Chevrolet using 21st century technology, he was more than happy to assist.
“He was more of a brother than a friend,” Whitter said. “He fought cancer for many years.”
The car was completely restored inside and out, and no expense was spared with a brand new crate motor, suspension, vintage air, cruise control, power steering and power brakes. But the most important request? That his grandson gets the car, and Whitter agreed to make that happen.
