My parents surprised me by having my 1957 Chevy painted for Christmas

December 26, 1964, Sunday. Got my 1957 Chevy Painted!

Today we returned some of the clothes we got for Christmas. I returned my coat and got some blue capris and $170.00 credit… Then I got the biggest surprise ever!  Mom and Dad got my car painted! I was never so surprised ever! It’s just like a brand new car. I just loved it!! I can’t believe they did this for me. I just love them! Mommy returned her $40.00 robe I got her and got a blue sweater and a blazer. I sat under my new sun-lamp tonight and it really works!!! I’m getting tan. I’ll look like I went to Palm Springs for Christmas. I stayed home and rested tonight. I’m exhausted from the holidays.

I had to wear sun goggles to protect my eyes… so you can imaging how funny I must have looked with giant curlers in my hair getting a tan in the bathroom with these on.
