On the 50th anniversary of the 57 Chev in 2007: 1957 Bel Air Convertible with 283 cu. in. Power Pac 4 barrel Automatic in Tropical Turquoise, offered at that time by Fraser Dante Limited, a Roswell dealership primarily involved with classic cars, for $84,950. In the car is Tevie Dante Fraser, owner of the dealership with Thomas Fraser.

Redditor Belairboy wanted to give his dad a big surprise for his 57th birthday -- the car of his dreams, a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air.

As he explains in the post he made:

Growing up my dad always dreamed of owning a 57 chevy bel-air. He grew up poor in a family of 7 children. He never thought he would be able to own his dream vehicle but would talk about it all the time.

When I was 8 years old I promised him that on his 57th birthday I would buy him a 57 bel-air. I never forgot and was able to fulfill my promise.

If this doesn't make you choke up, nothing will.
