THE STORY:

I never had a close friend or family member die of cancer. sure I have known of people that have had the disease, but never really knew the person. I have donated money to relay for life. but never felt like I was really doing anything? my wife's mother passed away when she was 12 from cancer and I can tell even now at 40 she is still upset over the loss of her Mom. about 5 months ago one of my very good customers I'm doing a car for came in and told me his girlfriend Pauline was diagnosed with brain cancer. I was shocked she is the nicest lady in the world. he told me she had 2 walnut sized tumors in her brain and they cant operate because of where they are. and they were giving her 1-60 days to live!! I felt so helpless. I thought that I would have a sword made for her and had it engraved never stop fighting Pauline. I gave her the sword and she said it gives her strength to keep going because she is a fighter! she is still fighting this terrible disease, god love her. my goal now is to restore a gto convertible and raise money to help her and other cancer fighters. old muscle cars are like people. I always see beyond all that rust and neglect. they can be brought back to life. people are the same way they just need help getting there sometimes. and by restoring a car I feel like I'm making a difference in someone's life!  I will be donating a restored 70 gto to the highest bidder Thanks.
