CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A Kentucky boy at 8-years-old promised his dad that for his 57th birthday he would buy him a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. The boy, now an adult, kept his promise.

The father grew up in a poor family as one of seven children. The son actually purchased the Chevy 2 years ago. He stored it in an unused garage until the perfect moment arrived. The son worked 60-hour weeks for a few months over 6 days a week in order to purchase the vehicle.

"My dad has been everything to me, he is not my biological father but he IS my father. But this man in this video, my DAD my FATHER, was the best thing that ever happened to me and my mom and I hope I can be a fraction of the man that he is," the son wrote.
