Back in 1989, I inherited my first car. A 1982 Plymouth Horizon. It was a nice little car with a two-tone blue paint scheme. My Grandpa Sam was an auto body shop owner for years, but his shop had burned down in 1981. He built a substantial detached garage complete with everything you might find in a professional body shop. I took the Horizon up there in the summer of 1989 and, with the help of my grandpa and uncle, gave it a thorough respray in its original colours. I drove the snot out of that car for a few years, then purchased a 1985 Dodge Omni GLH Turbo off a friend.
I remember that car, that summer, and especially my grandpa fondly.

I'm just a guy who loves his garage, Audi, and detailing so much he blogs about them.
