Fantastic story. While more common than the 1M, in my opinion, you got what you needed for your son and still came out on top with the car. All the best to you and your family

I usually dont post much but this is an awesome thread. One of the best stories i have read in awhile. Shows that a bond between a father and son is so much more than a bond with a car. You sir are a good man and I wish you and your son the best of luck in the future.

you made the smart choice to sell the car for your son.

Thanks for all the positive words of encouragement! Seriously you guys ROCK! I even had 2 different vendors offer to sponsor my new car with free parts. I respectfully declined but would love to mention them by name for props if they don't mind. This was never about not having the money or for sympathy. I was just excited about my kids new wheels(and mine) and wanted to share.

good to hear the backstory, and yes, cool wheels for kids over cool wheels for dad. Pretty much every parent here on this board would make that choice,yes.

congrats to your son. Mr Metak.
Exactly! For me I could have bought the equipment and kept the car, but it didn't feel right driving that car around while draining my emergency/savings. Or making my kid wait 4-5months(an eternity to a young developing brain) to gather the funds.

So, I appreciate all the great support and comments from EVERYONE but anyone with a kid realizes this is a no-brainer! I almost feel weird accepting any praise for something that just comes naturally. instinctively with a parents love for a child.

Wouldn't it be amazing if 35 years from now when he is a successful young executive he tracks down your car and buys it back to thank you for all you did?
