    Just last night I watched two very similar videos. Restores some of my faith in humanity.

    The one I watched was about a dad who sold his muscle car twenty years ago to make ends meet and the son tracked it down. My girlfriend was confused as to why I woke her up at midnight just to make her cry. lol

    Very x2 heart-warming!

    This is a great story for kids, who have tough time spending their efforts on their cars that are under their parents ownership, to convince their parents that working on cars can be a nice thing! (For them in a long run.)
