    Is this a dream sequence? If not then if Baldo didn’t have the money to buy the car, he sure doesn’t have the money for the kind of restoration and customization he has in mind.

    Did Sergio buy Baldo his car? I hope so. But as TexTech pointed out it will still be expensive.

    Looks like ’59, in pretty good shape. Probably run at least 15k, probably more depending on how original and engine and all.

    Impressive artwork. They don’t make automobiles like them anymore. All the Chevrolets you see now are mostly SUVs.

    It’s a win-win if you get him to do at least 1/2 of the work (or more)! And if you get to drive it every so often.

    Surprised Baldo didn’t cry and hug his dad. I would’ve.

    ’59 Chevy, not a ’64.

    Growing up my Dad had a ‘62 Chevy truck that we worked on together. Every year for his birthday and Christmas I bought him something for that old truck. I wanted to gunk the motor and clean it up and paint it but he wouldn’t let me said it would probably never run again. He would’ve turned 86 this Tuesday. I miss those times with him and all the things he taught me over the years.

    For me, the classic is the ‘58 Chevy Impala Convertible – fully customized with fender skirts, Continental kit, etc. – jet black with red upholstery, – was my teenage dream car.

    My first car was a 1941 Chevy 2-Door Sedan with 7,000 original miles on it, that I paid $1 for to make it a legal sale. I’d did yard work for the old man who owned it. He’d bought it new but had become so crippled up with arthritis, he hadn’t driven it in 8 years.

    I charged the battery, pumped up the tires and drove it out of his garage. My cousin and I decided to “customize” it. It always seemed to be " a work in progress ", since we were always finding things to do to it.

    I eventually traded it for a 1953 Morgan Plus4 Roadster and a 1957 Harley-Davidson Panhead.

    I owned a “lowered” car once – beware of speed bumps!

    Interestingly enough, the 1959 Chevrolet that Baldo is sitting in is one of the two post-war years that Ford OUTSOLD Chevrolet (the other was 1957). Soon afterwards, ‘Detroit’ abandoned their “one size fits all” philosophy and the auto makers stopped comparing sales.

    Looks like they got a project that’ll bring them closer than before.

    Maybe the Garage Squad can come by and restore it for him. They seems to like father/son projects.

    Having had a 1959 Chevy Impala convertible I continually search for ‘59 Chevys at antique car meets. There ar lots of Chevys to 1958 and 1960 on, but no 1959s! Imagine my delight at finding a 1959 Chevy convertible in your 04/20/2019 comiuc dtrip today. I’m interested in knowing the reason why Cantú and Castellanos chose to seature this car in today’s strip? (Notice that I have a picture of the ’59 Chevy on my Facebook site.)
