Je­sus David Gar­cia’s ’48 Chevy Fleet­line Aerosedan

Tak­ing on the restora­tion of a clas­sic car brings on an abun­dance of joy, but it also presents new own­ers with a mys­tery of sur­prises. Some have found decades-old french fries crammed be­tween the seats while the more for­tu­nate find lost jew­elry or vin­tage tools. But in the case of our next guest, he found an old suit­case that con­tained much more than he had ex­pected. This is the story of David Gar­cia, a pas­sion­ate lowrider who was born into this life­style, and the owner of this ’48 Fleet­line with a deep his­tory and the ev­i­dence to sup­port it.

This bomb is yet an­other fine ex­am­ple of how the lowrid­ing scene in Canada gets down, and a great story that talks about fam­ily pride, hard work, and a bit of luck. So jump on­line to grab the de­tails, in­clud­ing a list of mods, which in­clude a G-body, rearend, and much more.
