A moving memory

A moving memory

Gerald and Tonya Schmidt talk with Sam Aughe, center, owner of the 1946 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery parked at the Harvard Veterans Car Show. The Chevy is covered in names of veterans, police and first responders, some of whom have passed away. ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

A moving memory

A small portion of the Chevy, which is covered in names of veterans, police officers, and first responders.

From far away, the 1946 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery looks, as its owner says, unattractive.

But move closer and one would see the beauty the Delivery has turned into, despite its make and model.

In 1968, Sam Aughe, of Crete, was attempting to buy the 1946 Chevy, but at the time the owner wouldn’t sell it.

Those words came from SPS’s Secondary Principal Brandy Thompson as she presented the class, and who served as one of three speakers.
