Summary
When he was a younger man, Alistair McPhee was fond of escaping in his '56 Chevy Bel Air, Lucy, named for the cherished wife who died and left him and their nine-year-old son Colin behind. Yearning for a way to connect to his itinerant father, Colin turned to writing screenplays inspired by the classic films they used to watch together, while Colin's own son, Finn, grew up listening to his grandfather spin tales of danger, heartbreak, and redemption on the road. Now, at the end of his life and wishing to feel the wind in his hair one last time, Alistair charges his grandson with a task: bring Lucy to him in San Francisco from New York, where a man named Yip has been keeping her safe
Summary
A widower who neglected his son to take long driving trips in a '56 Chevy Bel Air lies on his deathbed and entreats his grandson to find and retrieve his beloved car, a quest that leads the young man, his disgruntled friend and a three-legged tabby cat through the cities where his grandfather had his greatest adventures
