Follow Nelson

This is a simple story, but it’s a beautiful one. When he was just 8 years old, a little boy promised his dad a 1957 Chevy Bel Air for his 57th birthday. Decades later, that little boy is a man, and he’s followed through on his promise.

It’s a heartwarming tale coming as it does just ahead of Father’s Day. The emotion expressed in the video captures the father’s elation as he realizes he finally has his dream car, something he never imagined possible growing up as a poor child in a family of seven.

As the video’s poster 8titlesdontlie (and new holder of the title The Best Son In The World) explains in the video’s comments, the car does, in fact, start and run. “It did start. My sister stopped recording, I am unsure why. Will get a video up this weekend of him driving it.”

Well done, son. Well done.

Your sister might want to hold the phone horizontally next time, though.
