Local Teen Wishes for Car Refurbishment


February 19, 2015

When Cameron, a witty 16-year-old diagnosed with cancer, was asked by Make-A-Wish® Utah what his one true wish would be, he excitedly replied that it was to have his 1986 Chevrolet El Camino refurbished.

On Thursday, February 19, Make-A-Wish Utah with the help of Griffin’s Golden Glow and Manheim Auto Auction, will unveil Cameron’s fresh “new” ride. 

As part of the refurbish, Cameron requested that the car be painted green, the color that represents his particular type of cancer, and has eagerly been waiting to see all of the changes. For the wish reveal, Cameron believes he is going to see classic automobiles at the auction, little does he know that his car will be waiting for him in one of the bays. 

A special presentation will be made by Jared Perry, CEO of Make-A-Wish Utah, to the employees of Griffin Golden Glow, who took extra care of the car and donated their personal time to work on this special project. This recognition will take place at Manheim Auto Auction at 3:30 p.m., before Cameron arrives with his family.
