Let's Restore Grandad's Car!

Your support could help accomplish a big dream.



My name is Jake, I'm seeking support funds to help me to fix up my Grandfather's first car, he has always helped me out when I needed it, and so now that he is having troubles with his project,  I'm just trying to give back something in return.

I've already taken the car to a garage and got the cost estimate to refurbish and get it working again. Currently, the car is in a really bad shape, but I'm hopeful that it can be fully repaired.

However, the repair comes with a hefty price tag of $50,000 that will cover the complete remodeling and reconstruction of the vehicle back to its former self.

This car always meant so much to my grandfather, and I know for sure it'll make him so happy to see it refurbished and working again. He attaches so much sentimental value to the car, and I'll be very happy to help him restore it to its former glory.

Please help me get it up and running!


I know we all have problems on our plates this period, but I'd appreciate it if you spared a thought and anything you can donate to help me put a smile on my Grandfather's face. At his age, very few things make him genuinely happy and excited.

Every dollar from this campaign would go directly towards new bodywork, new mechanical parts, any and all interior refurbishing, along with any and all exterior refurbishing as well.

This is a desperate plea to anybody and everybody who reads this that I can hopefully motivate you to help me achieve this dream of making my Grandfather truly happy at least 1 more time, while he is still alive, plus to help keep his mind off of the fact that he has a serious case of the COVID-19 virus. I would gladly do this repair alone and not bother anybody if I could afford it, but unfortunately, this time the funds just aren't there, and that's why I'm seeking support from the AMAZING members of the public who understand my passionate plea for assistance.


Your contribution will make an unbelivably gigantic difference in helping me achieve this dream. Please know your efforts, even the smallest, will not go unnoticed.

If you can't contribute, that doesn't mean you can't help. Please help me get the word out and make some noise about the campaign to your friends, tweet about it, or share it on Facebook!  

Thank you very much (in advance), and I hope that you will truly and wholeheartedly consider my request. Every dollar, even every penny makes an unbelivable difference.

Best regards
