I made my mother cry today
Mom is about to turn 70. She thought i was having her meet me for lunch
and i was bringing my new Audi in for service at a Mercede's dealership...I
know she has always wanted a Mercedes - but i don't think she knew she
would drive home in one today!
1. Yes - mom is actually 70 in this video. I will be sure to keep
telling her every time somebody posts about how young she looks. It makes
2. I'm in sales / run my own company - I work 60+ hours during the week
(and some more on the weekends if need be.) I have worked my butt off so I
can afford to do this and help out those close to me. It doesn't really
matter what you do or what you sell - if you work your hardest and enjoy
what you do then you can eventually buy a Mercedes for your mother someday.
Thank you for all the kind comments and well wishes!
2010 Camaro SS Birthday Surprise
May 2013 - Shane is now graduating from high school and the car remains in
excellent condition. You might also be surprised to learn that he still
hasn't gotten any tickets. We're very proud of the responsible young man he
Apr 2012 -- Well, Shane is now 17 and after 23,000 miles I'm happy to
report that he still hasn't had any accidents or tickets. He'll be a
senior next year and he's considering a career in automotive design. We'll
be posting an update video soon!!
Jan 2011 -- Shane has recently turned 16 and put more than 4,000 miles on
the car without ANY incidents. He takes outstanding care of the vehicle
and has grown to become a very responsible and mature teenager.
Feb 2010 -- My wife and I ordered a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS as a surprise birthday
gift for our fifteen year old son. This was a complete surprise and he
had absolutely no idea that the car was his. On another note, I appreciate
everyone's concern for his well-being, however I think it is more
responsible for a parent to teach a teenager how to drive than to pretend
that they're not going to drive fast. The car is not the danger; an
inexperienced driver is usually what causes injury or death, regardless of
Ferrari Birthday Gift!
My dad has always dreamed about driving the Ferrari, so for his birthday
gift; we got him one. P.S. When he took a seat in the car, he thought we
got him some type of Total Gym/Bow Flex. LOL!

Giving My Dad His Dream Car
My whole life my dad has always wanted a classic Jaguar, green with tan
interior. He mentioned it so often that it became a running joke in our
family. Then one day...we GOT HIM ONE! Surprise DAD! 1981 Jaguar XJ6.
Giving My Dad a Corvette for Christmas
Gave my Dad a 1988 Corvette for Christmas. He had always wanted one, but
sacrificed and gave constantly to everyone else and rarely had anything
nice for himself. Time for that to change! Skip to 3:50 for the good
Giving my dad his dream car, a Classic 1969 Camaro, part 2 of 2, Please read the description
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT, After many years of hard work, blood, sweat and
some more blood. I finally was able to restore, build and give my dad his
dream car. A 1969 Camaro, this is a car he has
wanted ever since he was young. I promised myself I would do this. Please
see the first part, as it is the letter I gave him before he got the car
and explains a little more why I did this. He found out about the car about
a year prior but had not seen it since it was painted and finished. I want
to thank the two other clips I found on youtube that helped give me the
motivation to achieve this, showing me that this dream, any dream was
possible. And of course everyone who helped make this a reality, I can
never thank you enough. My son is recording this while my brother and I
went around the block to get the car and drive it up to give it to him.
Note @ 11:30 the clip of the letter is played again. thanks for watching
and keep Dreaming

everyone for all there thought and wishes. I know even though my mom is not
here but will never be gone. This is the last video that we have of my mom.
I miss you mom.
