Grandfather Surprised With Dream Sports Car On 80th Birthday

A grandfather couldn’t hold back his tears when he was surprised with his dream sports car on his 80th birthday after his first meal out with his family since February due to COVID. After dining with his family at a restaurant in Holmdel, New Jersey, for the first time since February to celebrate his birthday, Paul Kissel delighted at spending time together again. But as the group stepped out of the restaurant on October 17, he immediately caught sight of a beautiful sports car, which had a big red bow wrapped around it. Paul’s granddaughter, Marina Vurchio, revealed the car, a 1972 Mercedes 350 SE, was extremely difficult to track down, but after they did, the family spent months restoring it. With so many family members in on the act, Marina said it was difficult to keep everything under wraps - especially during the surprise meal itself. Marina captured the moment on film, sharing it on social media to millions of views.
