Miami was a great experience! Not just because it’s Florida, but because of all the cool people I met too. From event coordinators and workers laying carpet and running electricity to the AARP members, we were all instant friends.
Ami G. worked her magic and made those friendships come to fruition. She inspired AARP Convention attendees to start working on that old car that’s been sitting in their garage for years. And she brought back great memories of the cars they use to have.
Whether you’re a car person or not, there’s no denying that classic cars and their stories bring people together. I heard many great tales during this awesome event. One guy I met, Richard, was a GM Autobody Tech for 40 years and remembers vividly working on the old Chevelles, like Ami G.
So what was my single most important lesson from the trip? No matter how much times change, America’s passion for classic cars will continue to unite us.
