Texas mom, Jessica Johns wanted to do something special for her son Justin, whose dad died in Iraq in 2003 when Justin was only nine months old.
Justin said he wanted a car, any car, that his father had once drove. His mother then set out to make the seemingly impossible, possible after finding her husband’s 1999 Toyota Celica registration after being tucked away for years.
Jessica decided to reach out on Facebook with pictures and the car's registration number to see if anyone could help her track down the convertible. A few days later, the daughter of the car’s owner messaged Jessica. She then called the owner, who lived in Pleasant Grove, Utah, and he agreed to sell her the car.
Amazingly enough, Follow The Flag, who works out of Utah to "inspire patriotism" collected donations to help pay for the car and even took the time to restore the Celica to it's glory.
Once everything was done, the founder of Follow The Flag drove the Celica to Jessica and Justin in Moore, Texas.
When Justin was surprised with the car and given the keys, he was left speechless.
We're not crying, you are.
