Dear Future Children; This Is a Perfect Present

This man, seemingly best known as “Pops,” once was a 16-year-old in a green 1968 Pontiac GTO with a black vinyl top. He drove around with his girlfriend, who later became his wife, who then helped him create a few cool people. Pops just turned 60, and has, according to a tearjerker of a card, made many sacrifices for his family.

The card and the framed photos of his old car alone would have been an awesome present.┬áThat wasn’t enough for these kids, however. They also got him a green 1968 Pontiac GTO with a black vinyl top that had just been professionally restored, which was enough to reduce Pops’ vocabulary down to a singe word: “no” said with as much gleeful disbelief as possible. Like a true car guy, he revved the crap out of that engine.

In roughly three months I’ll be a dad, and I hope my kids are this awesome. On a related note, I also hope to make some extra money soon so I can replace my own dad’s Lotus Europa John Player Special that he regrets selling to this day.
