Detroit area woman shares late grandfather's classic on Back to the Bricks tour

GRAYLING (WJRT) - (06/15/16) - "He cherished it. I remember walking into his garage and I was 4 years old, and I was like, 'Wow!'" said Nancy Earls, of Monroe.

Now, Earls is behind the wheel of the 1956 Buick Special that was once owned by her grandfather.

He bought it back in 1955, brand new. She says she can remember him either storing it in the garage or taking it out for Sunday drives.

After her grandfather passed, the Buick was passed down to her father. When her father died, her mother gave it to her.

Earls now takes it around to car shows, where she shares her personal memories.

She carries a photo album that has all of the original paperwork, including the original bill of sale that showed her grandfather paid just over $2,500 for the car.

Nearly 60 years later, Earls says the car is in perfect condition.
