Girl, 9, Proud Owner Of Classic Car


DETROIT, Aug. 18 (UPI) — A Detroit man said he handed his 1958 MG Roadster down to his daughter, but the girl won’t be able to drive it for another seven years.

Kim Brady, 50, said he gave the car, which he has owned for 23 years, to his daughter, Kym, 9, and made the gift official by registering it in her name with the Michigan Secretary of State, the Detroit Free Press reported Thursday.

“I want her to have that sense of togetherness,” Kim Brady said. “This car seems to bring everyone around and it gives her the feeling there is still some good in Detroit. Detroit and the community can still come together no matter what you know, and she’s getting that pride, she’s getting that from this car.”

Kym said she painted the designs on the hood herself and placed her signature on the back of the vehicle.

“He wanted me to have something to remember him by when he passes and just have fun in the car and just have something to be proud of,” the fourth-grader said.
