Published December 18, 2014 by Kahn Media

To car enthusiasts, your first car was a symbol of freedom.  It gave you a way to explore the world beyond how far you could ride your bike and meant you didn’t have to rely on anyone else to get where you wanted to go.  It didn’t matter if you had a rusty jalopy that barely ran, a hand-me-down from the parents or an older sibling, or, if you were one of the lucky ones, something that was the envy of all of your friends.  Yancey Taylor definitely fits into the latter category as he was fortunate enough to receive a step-side ’66 C10 from his dad as a fifteenth birthday present.
