Really glad see you continuing your dad’s plan. I always admired Jonanthan, what a stand up guy he was. Each day on our rally across America in 2011, I looked forward to hearing the Chrysler past me. Great car!!! Wife and I looking at 2017 Himilayan trip and/or 2019 Peking to Paris. Our Best to you.
Stories like this are why I love Petrolicious. I was very touched by the genuine emotion shown by this Man, and as many have said before me, its the people that make being into cars (and bikes) so wonderful. I am a subscriber on YouTube but this story lead me to the actual site and sign up.
Good luck with the Peking to Paris, Jake.
Beautiful piece lads…more so the capture of a gent giving remembrance of his Father, and the life of cars they shared together…cheers!
Great car and great story. I always dreamed about rallying a classic (have a 65 Fastback). Would you be willing to chat and share some of your experiences?
Jake is one of those guys that after meeting him you realize that its the people that are the best part of all this not the cars…
Great story Jake.
Your father sounded like a great guy- Good luck with the Peking- Paris Rally. Looking forward to hearing how you won it!
Respect! Hope you make your dads dream come true…
It’s always the souls behind the cars that make these stories shine. Not gonna lie, this one got me chopping some onions just now and thanks for sharing Jake. I sincerely wish you and the New Yorker the best at Peking to Paris Motor Challenge! I’m sure your pops will be with you in spirit, so Godspeed to you!
As always, thank you Petrolicious!
This is what non car people will never understand. Yes, they are works of mechanical art (well, some) but they are more than that. The emotion on his face as he recounts the work and experiences had between he and his father show a car as being so much more.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful story with us. Best of luck in Paris!
Nice tribute under the Bridgehampton “Bridge” the last remains of a once great track.
Great story, and hope to hear more about the Peking Paris adventure?
Wow! Enjoy Paris 😉
What a good video and a great car with a great story to it as well. This is what makes Petrolicious stand out among the other car websites out there. Im glad you have no intention of slowing down with the Chrysler show the world what the big ole American iron can do
These are the kind of videos that keep me coming back to [i]Petrolicious[/i]. The story of this man and his father is both uplifting and heartbreaking all at the same time. Thanks for sharing this incredible story with us, and reminding us why we love cars and why we love driving them.
