Default Surprising Dad with a 1973 Corvette

I saw this for the first time this weekend without realizing it's some year old. Pardon if its been posted before. In a world of constant bad news, I found this video to be refreshing and kind.

Related story, but kinda funny and sad at the same time:

My brother in law Brian's father in law has dementia. Pops has/had a pretty nice mid 60's T bird, so Brian will occasionally take it to the memory car and take him for a drive.

Pops will comment "hey - that's a nice car. Where'd you get that?"

Brian will respond "Pops - that's your car".

Invariably his reaction will be "WHAT?! You got this car FOR ME?!"

Brian usually just rolls with it, especially as Pops goes around and tells other folks what Brian (apparently) did.
