1. My Dad’s Car

This is a touching true story about a son’s search for his dad’s old 1965 Chevy Impala. His dad had to sell the car to make ends meet in the 80s, and his reaction when seeing it again is one of the best examples, in my opinion, of how “Chevy Runs Deep”. It’s about the car, it’s the about the gesture, and it’s about the family helping each others’ dreams come true. That’s what makes this video so powerful.


Happy Father’s Day!
