A Dad's A - 1929 Model A
Frank Maniatis so treasured his 1929 Ford Model A Roadster that 75 years after he bought it, the car still owns a special place in his daughter Tina Higgins' heart -- and her garage. From cross-country pleasure trips to lumber hauling, makeshift repairs and patched-up fenders to a full restoration -- and even a tearful homecoming after it had been stolen -- this family heirloom has just about seen it all.

18yr Old Buys Dad His Dream Car: 1966 Thunderbird
My father is my number one inspiration. He has taught me everything I know to this day. From him and I working on cars to landscaping, I don't recall a single time I felt "pressured" to learn from him. His radiating knowledge has shaped me into the young man I am today. Words cannot describe how grateful I am and I only know of one way I will be able to "slightly" repay him for everything he has done. Roughly 20 years ago, my father had his 1966 Ford Thunderbird Hardtop painted Wimbledon White with a 390cu V8 motor and Black interior that was his precious gem. A few years later he was forced to sell it because of economical hardships the family was going through. To this day, he constantly talks about his love for that car and how he regrets selling it (and always telling people that are debating to sell their cars that they will regret it down the road). When I was about 5 years old, I promised my dad that one day I would buy his car back for him. I perfectly remember the smirk he gave me thinking I'm only a little boy. But, little does he know that to this day I still plan on buying his car and surprising him. I cannot wait for the day I am able to surprise him and catch his reaction on camera, because I know it will be absolutely priceless and breath taking. My father means the world to me; he has always been there to help me or anyone else in need. Through the years of working on cars with him, I have learned so much that I am able to apply those skills and I am not afraid to stop and ask someone who is having car trouble if they need a jumpstart or maybe a hand replacing a belt on the side of the road. Without my father, I wouldn't be able to help those people and I wouldn't be driven like I am to pursue my education and become a Mechanical Engineer.
