Social Media Helps Teenager Have An Awesome First Car
November 15th, 2017
To a lot of people, a 1999 Toyota Celica isn't much. But to this teenager, it was everything. Justin Rozier never knew his father who was killed in action in Iraq when Justin was a baby.
CBS reported that on his 15th birthday, he received the same 1999 Toyota Celica convertible his dad used to drive. His mother had sold the car to pay off medical bills but miraculously found the car through lots of searching, a little luck, and the power of social media. After turning to Facebook with the car's VIN and photos she struck some luck. And after contacting the current owner he was more than happy to sell the car back to her. That’s a cool first car to have, faith in humanity restored.
This week Katie has two gorgeous rides that best represent the quality and variety you’ll see at the Summit Racing Show Car Series. Former General Manager of the ISCA Bob Millard will be her guest to talk about the 28 car shows in the series. The International Car Show Association (ISCA) is the sanctioning body behind the series. Owners from all over the U.S. and Canada compete for the title of Grand Champion.
In the studio is a 1939 Ford Coupe owned by Bob’s wife Sandy. It’s got a small block Chevy 350 bored over to 355, custom paint, custom interior and a slick BASF “red” wrap. The second car belongs to Megan Tracy and is a show-stopping 1970 Camaro RS. It’s powered by a Chevy 350 making 385 horsepower and features custom interior and custom wheels.
