When Mike King was 8 years old, he promised his father that he would buy him a ’57 Chevrolet Bel-Air on his 57th birthday. Now Mike has fulfilled that promise. The Bel Air was his father’s dream car. King wrote about it on Reddit. King worked hard to live up to the promise. He worked long overtime hours at his factory job. He bought the car two years earlier and saved it to fulfill the promise of presenting it on his father’s 57th birthday.
