(RareCarMarket.com) – Social media has changed the way we live our lives, instantly connecting people from all over the world. For one man, it has done so much more. It made the seemingly impossible a reality when he tracked down a classic car that once belonged to his beloved father.
JD Goad’s father, WD, sold his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro 15 years ago. However, he quickly regretted the decision. The father spent half a decade looking for his build from 1992 but had no luck and eventually gave up. WD died in 2020 after contracting COVID-19.
JD decided he would try again, despite the fact the car was sold 15 years ago. He posted a picture of the car on Facebook and mentioned he was looking for his father’s old vehicle. JD told a local news station he created the post around 7 or 8 p.m. one night. His friends quickly began interacting, and JD received some messages but didn’t have any luck.
JD admitted to going to bed feeling defeated and didn’t think he would ever see the Camaro again. The next morning he woke up to a message from around 11 p.m. the night before from a guy claiming he had his father’s car. Sure enough, it was the exact vehicle, and JD drove seven hours one way to Kentucky to pick it up.
JD recalled growing up around cars and spending time in the garage with his father, wanting to grow up to be just like him. He admitted that he cried after getting his dad’s car back and that WD may not be able to get behind the wheel of it anymore, but for JD, all that matters is that he was behind it at one point.
