My dad restored this 1936 Ford 2door sedan when he was 16, it was his treasured car& he won first prize in many car shows, and it was very painful for him to sell it in 1993. He sold it to pay for seminary, because that was his calling. My dad talked about this car for as long as I can remember, always saying he would buy it back if he could find it. Well last year I began the search because its been my dream to buy it for him. After a few months of finding it and arranging the purchase, we scrambled the money together and brought it home on our secret trip to "New Orleans" The moment of shock and tears on my dad's face will be the greatest memory ever! God is so good to make this happen for me and my family. Finding the car, getting the money and getting it half way across the US with no problems is truly a blessing from God! God fulfilled his promise of Matthew 19:29!
However the car has been sitting without many repairs since I bought it August of 2014 because of lack of money to do the repairs. My dad and I have been doing what we can by ourselves, however its now at a hault because we need money to send it off to have it fiber blasted then painted. All extra money has been spent on my moms hospitalization this past year, its my dream to get this car back on the road for my Dad. Many have asked if I had a GoFundme account because they would like to donate, so I figured I would make one. We will see how God uses it. :) Thank you!
