Kids surprise mom and dad with their 1st car, restored 1973 Pontiac Lemans
My dad's first car was a 1973 Pontiac Lemans. It was the car my parents started dating in and the first car I can remember riding in. They had 5 kids and the car was lost somewhere along the way. We gave it back. Edit - It seems we have been dubbed the "Guzer" family because of my silly Youtube name (character from a movie). However, I am Nathan Streifel and we are the Streifels.
