When he was 8 years old, he promised he would buy his dad the car of his dreams.
He made that dream come true years later- and luckily caught it on video.
A recent YouTube video shows the moment a son surprises his father with his 57th birthday gift. He was given a 1957 Chevy Bel Air- the car of his dreams, and the same car his son said he would buy him as a young child.
After growing up in a poor household with many siblings, owning a Bel Air was something his father never expected.
The family was able to surprise the father by distracting him with a household game that needed fixed.
They insisted he needed "something" in the garage, and the emotional reaction began from there.
