Honoring heros through cars. Fallen Heros Dream Ride

In our continuing effort to raise awareness of those who do good with cars I want to tell you about Marine Lance Corporal Phillip Vinnedge. Lance Corporal Vinnedge had a dream to restore an old Chevy Truck once he finished his service, unfortunately on October 13, 2010 he was killed in Afghanistan. His dream would not die because shortly after his passing his family made the decision to buy and restore a 51 Chevy truck to honor not only Lance Corporal Vinnedge but all fallen heros.

The idea is that this truck will cross the country and finally end up in San Diego where troops will be able to view the truck before they ship out again in late September. After the cross country ride the truck will be used to raise money for organizations such as Marine’s Toys for Tots among others.

Here is a short video showing the truck.

In the coming days I hope to bring you more info on how you can contribute to this cause. Until then check out fallen heros dream ride for more info.
