This story begins with a young lady. This young lady was looking for that special car. After some searching, a unique opportunity, with a special car, presented itself. After contacting the party who owned this car and arranging a family test drive, the car was purchased.
The year was 1967.
The car is 6S289.
The young lady is my mom.
Mom always loved 6S289, her 1966 GT350, even during those 28 years that it sat idle in her garage.
In 2005, it was my honor, after those 28 years of being dormant, to work on bringing 6S289 back to its former glory. 6S289 was back on the road again in 2007 and Mom was so excited to see this after now 30 years. Mom attended car shows and loved to share her experiences of 6S289 with those who would stop by to see her special car.
Mom was able to enjoy these times for only a few short years, because sadly, we lost mom three years ago.
I want to remember and honor mom and one of those things she loved and really enjoyed - her GT350.
The photo is of mom and 6S289 in 1968.
