This happened last summer and I am just getting around to uploading it.
Quick backstory: my son saw his first Celica when he was 6 years old and excitedly asked, "what kind of car is that?!" Fast-forward 10 years and he was searching for his first car. He saved some money from a part-time job but I decided to surprise him. I bought this 2004 GTS with 70k miles and had it parked at a car show when we showed up. He immediately went over to check it out, no idea it was HIS car :)
This video is him getting the surprise of his life.
The audio is low at the start.
I asked him, "Do you want to drive home?"
He responds, "What? The Lotus?"
Hope you all enjoy it!

That is really too cool. Those are the kinds of things he'll remember about you when he's 60 years old.

doesn't quite top the 20 something who popped on here a few years ago wanting to know something about the car his father just gave him. It was his father's car, dad didn't drive it anymore so decided to give it to the kid.

An X180R Esprit. One of exactly 20 street versions.

I hope so. He is a really good kid and I'm glad that I could get it for him.
Thanks to everyone for the comments! Glad to see others enjoying the video...
