In the inspiring narrative of automotive passion and perseverance, we introduce you to Mike Delaney—a devoted car enthusiast who, despite losing his vision at the age of 24, continued to embrace his love for automobiles.

Mike’s journey with bow tie cars began in his teenage years, with his first car being a 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS. He went on to own a ’55 Chevy 2-door and a 1951 Chevy pickup truck, building a connection with these classic vehicles that defined his automotive journey.

Despite the challenge life presented, losing his vision, Mike did not surrender to adversity. Years later, with his children grown up, he made a remarkable decision—to embark on another automotive project. The result of this determination and passion is beautifully captured in the video featuring Mike and his 1965 Chevy Malibu Super Sport.

This ’65 Chevrolet Malibu SS is more than a classic car; it’s a symbol of resilience and the unwavering spirit of a car enthusiast who refused to let blindness dim the flame of his automotive passion. Mike’s story serves as an inspiration, demonstrating that love for cars knows no boundaries and can triumph over even the most significant challenges life throws our way.
