A Kentucky man who just turned 57 is the proud new owner of a ’57 Chevy thanks to his son, who promised his father more than two decades ago that he would buy him that car when his dad reached that milestone.
Mike King said the car was his dad’s dream car when his dad was a kid, Fox8 Cleveland reported. Roger King grew up poor in a family of seven kids and never thought he would be able to own his dream car.
“When I was 8 years old, I promised him that on his 57th birthday I would buy him a 57 Bel Air,” King, now 31, said on Reddit. “I never forgot and was able to fulfill my promise.”
King also posted a video that shows his father’s stunned reaction when he saw the car and he gave his father the keys. King and his father live in Louisville.
Mike King said he bought the car in New Hampshire and hid it in his garage for two years.
