Two years ago I drove my 92 year old dad to Yazoo City Mississippi so he could see his relatives and friends he grew up with that he hadn't seen in several years. We drove the 56 Bel Air that year and had a blast. Just dad & me spending time together and enjoying the road together seeing some of his child hood places I never knew about.
Well May 1,2019 we set out on the same trip together again but this time in the 64 SS. Dad is 94 now and is in pretty good shape so he want's to make the trip and we plan to have the Impala in the Jerry Clower festival in downtown Yazoo City on Saturday the 4 of May.

Last trip we had to be back the week before the festival so we missed it.
If your in the area and would like to come by and say hello I know my dad would love it, he is also retired from GM Chevy division with 35 years. He held many titles in his career but I think his best one was the top instructor for Chevy in Charlotte NC for 12 years. He taught every mechanic that worked at any dealership in the south east that wanted to be certified.

Good one Andy. I hope you both have a blast. Make sure you post a couple of pics. That’s pretty cool your dad held that position in GM. He’s most likely a wealth of knowledge.

Thanks,
Dad has his good days and bad. He does have a lot of info but sometimes it's hard for him to get it out.
I'm very honored he and I get to do this again. I'm looking forward to it and hoping we see some cool stuff like last time.
