Birthdays are always exciting. For many, it’s more fun for them to plan thrilling surprises for another! It’s so rewarding to pull off a celebration for a loved one, knowing that you’re the reason that joy fills their heart on this day. For one man named Cam, a certain birthday surprise he planned had been several years in the making.
His grandfather, Fred, was his best friend in the entire world. Like most best friends, you want to do everything under the sun to make their birthday as special as possible. Much like his grandfather, Cam was a huge car fanatic. It’s likely one of the reasons they have such a sweet friendship. Fred still owned his 1957 Chevy and he loved it so much.
Unfortunately, time and the elements had taken their toll on the old car and it had become virtually useless. As the years passed, it remained in the same location and same condition. The thought of the car never left Cam’s mind. As the wheels began to turn, he concocted a brilliant idea.
He immediately started to work on saving up as much money as he could. At one point, he even sold his own personal vehicle. The reason behind all of this was because he wanted to restore his grandfather’s car to its original condition. After countless hours and sleepless nights spent secretly working on this ride, the time had finally come for the grand reveal.
Friends and family gathered around for Grandpa Fred’s birthday surprise. Fred was completely clueless but ever so anxious to see just what the commotion was all about. After all was said and done, Cam said, “Today was one of the best days of my life. All the countless hours, sleepless nights, and long days spent rebuilding every single nut and bolt on this car was worth it all just to see my grandpa’s reaction. He was in shock! He is my best friend and deserves every bit of it!” Check out the video, below, to see Fred’s reaction!
