A Bel Air Love Affair

The Medford Cruise kicks off today and it's never short of a love affair for classic car enthusiasts, but it's not too often that you hear the love stories behind a car and it's owner.

Owning a classic car often translates into a love story between man and machine. Larry Rogers explains it's a true love story between the car he bought when he was seventeen and his high school sweet heart turned wife.  

"I drove it through high school, serenaded my high school sweetheart in it, married her and we've just enjoyed it."

 For Rogers though, his car holds a much deeper meaning. His wife passed away from cancer two years ago and the car that they shared  runs as strong today as it did when they first fell in love.

"So it's been a real special time and has a lot of good memories."

Rogers says the 58' Chevy Bel-Air is a rare two door model that he loves to showcase at these types of events. And he says it's the people at these events and the conversations he has with them about old cars that he enjoys the most.

Rogers can continue to share the love story of both of his Bel-Air and his wife.
