If you’re watching our Car Stories in order, then episode two must come as somewhat of a surprise. This is when CarNerd TV took the second exit off Rookie Roundabout and left Amateur Avenue receding in the rear-view mirror. Our sophomore effort features drone shots, professional audio recording equipment, high-quality camera lenses; and a heartwarming story about a 1966 Ford Mustang that binds together three generations of fathers in the Bezzina family.
CarNerd TV’s first narrative feature also pushes the time limit past the ten-minute mark. In this clip, we speak to the father-and-son duo, Joseph and Daniel Bezzina, who share the incredible story of a Ford Mustang that Joseph’s father bought in New York City in 1966. He subsequently brought the car to Malta in 1968 and drove it daily for 30 years until his son had to lock it up in a garage, where it lay unmoved for years.
More recently, grandson Daniel took on the task of lovingly restoring the car and turning it into the showpiece it is today. In the video, he describes the long and arduous journey of taking apart the car, fixing all the original parts that could be saved, and sourcing new ones to replace what was beyond repair. All this with a little help from Daniel’s son who, at a tender age, already has great affection for this one-of-a-kind family heirloom as his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him.
