Cars can be more than just a means to get you from point A to point B. There is a lot of emotion around them; the memories they represent, the time in a person’s life they signify, and so much more. They can also sometimes feel like a member of the family or one of your best friends.
‘Tis the season for gift giving and special gifts at that. The YouTube sensation simply referred to as “Angry Grandpa” recently received a heartfelt auto gift that had him quite emotional.
It seems when the man hit the legal age for driving and snagged his license at 16 years old, like many at that age, was gifted his first vehicle by his parents: a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Sadly, the man lost it one year later when it was passed to his sister, by his parents, so that she could have wheels to move to another part of the country. Even sadder? On her way to California the Bel Air broke down, and she ended up selling the remains of the vehicle for scrap.
Obviously, the man was devastated and maybe we know where his nickname Angry Grandpa comes from. Needless to say, Grandpa missed that Bel Air all through his years, and longed for another one. In fact, he only had two items on his bucket list. One, to own a home, which was accomplished; number two was to get back that Bel Air.
So, what does his son do? Well, MSN reported that he presents Angry Grandpa with an incredible-looking copper-red and white, two-door Bel Air; in great condition and one that looked quite like the original that he had once owned. While the tease was done in a nearby Piggly Wiggly parking lot – and then the surprise reveal that the car was his actually his later on at their residence – it was all documented on their YouTube channel for the whole world to see.
And of course, the feels are all there, with the older man getting quite emotional when he realizes that the car he had seen previously at the parking lot, the same one he had when he was 16, was all his now.
It’s always hard to find a perfect Christmas gift for the ones you love this time of year, but in this instance, seems like Angry Grandpa’s son nailed it.
