Father, son duo repair 1966 Charger

Posted: Updated:

The Cool City Car Show in Bay City kicked off Friday with hot rods and classic cars cruising through town.

Friday morning TV5 caught up with a father and son duo who travel all over to show off their ride.

When Richard and Paul Gies first took a look at the beat up 1966 Dodge Charger they knew they had their work cut out for them.

"It was a big undertaking," Richard Gies said.

It had pieces of the floor missing and needed a lot of work to get it running, but the father-and-son duo spent years fixing the cool car. 

"Now that it's finished, all those years of work really paid off. It's so much fun now. Especially taking it to shows," Paul Gies said.

It took five years to complete the restoration on the car, but Paul said he had no doubt that his dad could do the job. 

"He does everything he sets his mind to," Paul Gies said.

From the old fashioned logo to the rumble it makes as they drive on, the Gies' love old cars. 

"It's fun. As an only son, only child, it was something dad and I could do together," Paul Gies said.

The Gies' will be showing the '66 charger at the Cool City Car Show this weekend, but they said they give a show every time they drive down the street. 

"What's really neat is when you go down the expressway, how many people will have their smartphones out taking a video of it going by," Paul Gies said.
