James is restoring this 1972 Dodge Polara Police Car as a tribute to his son, Derek, who passed away after battling Hodgkin’s disease. James quit his job as a college football coach to care for Derek. They shared a love for cars and showed many different vehicles in Derek’s short life. This vehicle will be frame-off restored and shown in Derek’s memory.
I’ve been working in Auto Service for nine years and it never ceases to amaze me the number of amazing stories that come from our clients. Not a day goes by that I don’t learn something new or learn about a vehicle I’ve never heard of.
