Growing up, Michael King said, his dad always dreamed of owning a 57 Chevy Bel-air.

“He grew up poor, in a family of 7 children. He never thought he would be able to own his dream vehicle, but would talk about it all the time,” says his son on YouTube.

“When I was 8 years old I promised him that on his 57th birthday I would buy him a 57 bel-air. I never forgot, and was able to fulfill my promise.”

Michael had been showing his father pictures of the Bel-air in recent years to gauge how much he would enjoy it. He would get very excited but admit he knew he never would be able to own one like it.

The aqua-blue vintage car had been in King’s possession for two years waiting until the 57th birthday.
