Son Reunites Father With 1965 Chevy Impala SS [Video]
text size: A- A+
The Younger family bought the car when it was brand new and kept it for 20 years until they hit rough times and had to sell. “To pay for his son's education, Herb Younger was forced to sell his beloved '65 Impala. Two decades later, they found a way to pay him back,” Chevy says.
The son says he started his search online, but he was always two steps behind where the Impala actually was. When he learned it had been moved to Canada, he though was all over, but he didn’t give up. To hear the moving story and see Herb Younger’s reaction... it’s a really moving video, make sure you watch it if you’re into Chevys.

When my 1963 Impala was sold in 1976 I knew some day I would find it again. After children arrived and several updated cars and trucks my son asked to find a Chevy to restore. I made a few phone calls and located my car in a barn only after a 2 week search. It was housed only 30 miles away and after 17 years I drained every bank account we had at the time and brought my Chevy home for good. We have attended many car shows and she has a new 350 engine and body and paint thanks to my son. So I have had my car from 1966-1976 and again from 1993 to the present and she is not 'for sale'

I have a 79 Camaro z28 that my brother bought new and i purchased from him in 1984. A few years sgo, I lost my business, my savings and just about everything else that I had. I would not sell the car though even when i was totslly broke. Things are a little better for me now but sitting behind the wheel of that car brings back memories and an indescribable feeling ... Worty more to me than all of the money in the world. Herb Younger you are a very lucky man to have your fsmily

This is a direct rip off from Eric Bana's documentary "Love the Beast" IMHO.

My first car when I was 17,was a 65 Impala SS. Two years ago I bought another 65 Impala SS (not the same car) and I am in the middle of a frame off restoration process with it. This commercial is really touching and what a great car .

In the late 60's I bought a '65 Corvette Coupe, silver with a matching interior, 327/365, four speed, posi, radio delete. In the mid 80's I was brain injured in an accident and my wife sold my pride and joy. I searched for the car by running ads in the NCRS publication Drivelinf for twenty years to no avail. In February I located the car two towns away from my home. The owner has not registered it since 1993, and he is thinking about selling it. I am hoping he makes a decision soon as I am not getting any younger. Does anyone know how to contact Chevy's advertising agency to give them my story?

I owned a 65 Impala SS, red convertable. Sold it in 1970 to help pay for college. What I wouldn't pay now to get it back.
