Keith Nepsa, 21, of New Philadelphia, Ohio, was killed by a roadside bomb last weekend in Iraq. Three of his best friends are now restoring Nepsa's 1985 Camaro, because his goal was to drive it down the street just once when he got back. They plan to drive it in his funeral procession.

Amanda Robbins of member station WKSU reports.
