The word aerospace is used for the first time. Alaska becomes a state. The first integrated circuit is invented. Congress creates NASA. And the idea for Surf City Garage is born in Southern California when Tim Miller’s Dad brings home a brand new Chevrolet step-side pickup.

He remembers his dad teaching him how to drive in that Chevy, and he even still owns it, but now it’s got 4-wheel disc brakes and Corvette running gear.
