You can't keep a good Gran Torino down, as the saying goes. The guys over at JR Garage were given the task of selling their Uncle Jim's Gran Torino, but they had something else in mind. They got to work restoring the muscle car instead, and while they did make it look and run like new, unfortunately Uncle Jim had passed away before they could show it to him. So instead, they brought it around for the whole family to see.

This was quite the heartwarming journey, and you can check out parts 1, 2, and 3 of the original story,
