Your 1960s rides
Papa and his First Chevy
Santiago said, "In June of 2012 my father suffered a debilitating stroke and can no longer walk. I miss seeing my father walk and do all of the things that he enjoyed doing in life. The image I sent in is of a vibrant young man proudly standing alongside his very first automobile."
While Santiago said her father remembers it being a '59 Bel Air, some intrepid CNN readers pointed out that it's from 1957. Alex Nunez, director of RoadandTrack.com, confirmed that the car's trim shape indicates it is a 1957 Bel Air.
