Moments of brilliance can lurk in the most unexpected places. The character Red from "That '70s Show" once pontificated, "Being a man is all about doing things you don't want to do." Herb Younger knows that better than most. The guy bought a 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS with a 396 brand new, spending nearly every dime he had at the time. He cherished the car for over 15 years before being forced to sell the SS to help pay for his sons' educations. Over 20 years later, Jared and Derek began a quest to find the old '65 and return it to its rightful owner.
The search would take over five years, span multiple states and international borders, but the payoff was well worth it. Jared and Derek told their father a film crew was doing a documentary on the American family when the Impala rolled up for the first time, and the look on Herb's face when he sees the canary yellow SS is unmistakeable. It's love.
"It's not just a car. It's all the memories and feelings. It brings all that back."
Yeah. That's about right. Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself.
