Deantre Reed lost his battle with cancer at only 15 years of age, before he could build his dream car. His aunt, Kisha Reed, seen here with a portrait of Deantre, launched a campaign to see his 1983 Olds Cutlass finished the way he wanted it.
The crew at Lonny Moore's Collision Repair pitched in and did the body work and the two-tone maroon-over-silver paint job on Deantre Reed' Olds. Several auto-related firms stepped up and provided additional parts for the project at either no cost or discounted cost.
The Olds Cutlass wasn't much to look at when it was rolled into the body shop to begin its transformation. Two months later, Deantre's family received the car from its builders in an emotional ceremony.
