This retired father’s 50-year-long dream to own the car he drove as a teenager comes true, thanks to an incredible surprise from his son.

After 73-year-old Larry Drennan After sold his 1959 cherry red Chevrolet Corvette in his early twenties, he has been dreaming of getting behind the wheel of his dream car once more for the last half-a-century.

Luckily for Larry, his son Tyler remained ‘incredibly grateful’ for the ‘amazing upbringing’ his dad provided him, so he got busy to help make his dad’s dream a reality.

Calling into his dad’s home in Palm Harbor, Florida, USA, Tyler hurries his father into the garage under the guise he has something in his truck for him. Taken aback by the camera focused on him, the retired salesman still remains none the wiser when Tyler hands him a set of car keys, saying ‘This is for you.’

Looking out to the driveway to see a 1999 cherry red convertible Corvette, Larry laughs at Tyler, believing it to be a prank, saying, ‘I’m going to get one of those one day,’ failing to yet realise that the day he dreams of is today!

After Tyler announces he’s bought it for him, Larry can barely believe his eyes, asking his son, ‘Are you insane?’, before jumping behind the wheel and smiling as he revs the engine. Tyler, who planned the surprise and bought the car all by himself, said: “My dad has been there with me through all the good and the bad, so I took it upon myself to make his dream come true. If anyone deserves this, it’s my father.”
