Most of the time, I angrily stalk around New York City with a frowny-faced expression to match my stony heart. Ain’t nothing or nobody getting under this. And then I watched this video from TheAngryGrandpaShow and everything shattered into a million pieces.


Angry Grandpa’s first car when he was 16 years old was a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Less than a year later, it was taken away from him when his sister needed it to drive to California. It broke down and she sold it to a junkyard. He never forgot about that car and, besides a house, it was the only other thing he wanted.

With this knowledge, his son surprised him with it. The reaction is priceless and heartwarming. Here, you watch the video for yourself. I’m going to go hug someone.
