The year was 1982. I was getting ready to go out with a blind date and wanted to make a good impression. I asked my grandfather if I could borrow his car. He had originally purchased the car in 1966. It was a Chevelle Malibu 2 door hardtop that was a gorgeous marina blue with a black interior. He kept the car in his garage and the car was kept in immaculate condition.
I picked up my date in the car and she was impressed with how it looked and how well it was taken care of.
A little over a year later, I married my blind date and used the 1966 as our wedding car and on our honeymoon to Florida.
I still own the car and am working on a frame off restoration. I'm hoping to take my wife of 31 years on another ride soon.
