Dad's 1969 Mercury Montego (Surprise presentation - Ford runs deep)
My dad owned a 1969 Mercury Montego in 1973. He sold it and since then has
been looking for one to restore. I found this one last year in Veteran,
Alberta (Canada) on Kijiji and bought it. The following videos are how the
idea to give my dad a car he used to drive developed into a surprise for
him that took place last week. There are pictures as well but I'll just
post the video portions. This project involved my sister Jill and my dad's
friend Alec and they played key roles in the whole process.
This is the actual presentation of the car to dad. He had seen the car at
his friend Alec's body shop but didn't know it as for him or that it was
getting painted yellow just like his. He thought it was for the wife of a
guy in a neighboring town. If you listen you can hear him say "that is
mine" and "identical" when he talks about the color.
The little box I hand him right before he realizes it's his had an engraved
key chain in it that said "From Chet, Jill and Alec".
