When he was 8, a boy from Kentucky promised his dad that he would buy him a '57 Chevy Bel-Air for his 57th birthday. His father had grown up as one of seven children in a poor family. Although he talked about his dream car often, he never expected to own one. Watch what happened when he realized that his son, now an adult, had followed through on that long-ago promise.

"Belairboy" explained on Reddit that he actually purchased the Chevy 2 years ago, after "pulling 60 hour work weeks over 6 days a week for a few months" at his factory job. He stored it in his unused garage and kept it a secret until the promised day finally arrived.

"My dad has been everything to me, he is not my biological father but he IS my father. But this man in this video, my DAD my FATHER, was the best thing that ever happened to me and my mom and I hope I can be a fraction of the man that he is," he wrote, as if everyone watching the video wasn't already crying.
