As a small child, Mike King promised his father the present of his dreams, a ’57 Chevy Bel Air for his 57th birthday. He was able to make his promise come true in this touching video.
King made this promise when he was 8 years old and he was hiding the car for two whole years before his father turned 57.
Roger King was absolutely speechless and his reaction could make the angriest of people cry.
Mike’s YouTube description explains the what happened throughout the video:
“Explanation on what he was doing. One of our cornhole boards was broken and we were trying to rig it to stay up, while he was occupied I opened my garage to show the vehicle. He was too intent on fixing the board that he didn’t notice the garage opening which took my sister saying “theres something we can fix it with in the garage, there”.
Also when he states thats the one you have been showing me, that is because I had been,I had showed him pictures of the Bel air. (I have had it for over 2 years waiting to give it to him) We would talk about older vehicles so to gauge how much he would enjoy it etc I would show him pictures of it from the listing I found. He would get so excited and talk about owning something like that but that he “knew he never would be able to”
