This video series has been created to showcase some of the fantastic cars in metro Atlanta and the people who put in the time, sweat and money to keep the tires rolling and the engines humming. 

One of those folks is James "Jimmy Jim" Brown who looks great in his 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Brown takes his car everywhere and has been known to channel Elvis as he performs shows for seniors.
