Grandson has been preparing a gift for his grandfather’s birthday for several years

Cam Deadman is a simple guy from Kentucky who decided to give his grandfather Fred Lamar a very special gift for his 81st birthday.

Cam wanted to thank his grandfather for the years spent caring for the family and set out to fulfill his old dream. True, for this the guy even had to sell his own car.

Fred Lamar worked for the good of the family for many years, pushing his own needs and desires into the background. Once he dreamed of repairing his car, but he could not allocate funds for this.

But he was always a caring father and grandfather, and to his grandson Cam he also became a true friend. When Cam matured and stood up, he decided to realize his grandfather’s idea.

The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air was once considered the most expensive Chevrolet model, but after 30 years sitting idle in Fred’s garage, it turned into a rusty wreck.

To give it new life, Cam had to work hard. He saved money for several years, and when he realized that the sum collected was still not enough, he sold his own car. However, according to Cam, “it was worth it.”

In the fall of 2016, Cam began restoring the car. And even if he was assisted by a team of professionals, work occupied all his free time.

Moreover, Cam had to do his best to keep everything that happened secret from his grandfather, and even for an entire year. Undoubtedly, all was not in vain.

During this year, Cam and his team managed not only to restore the car, but also to take into account all of Fred’s wishes, which he had already mentioned in conversations with his grandson.

Cam did not wait for the “official” start of an important date: 2 days before the holiday, he gathered the whole family and gave his grandfather a gift. “He almost passed out,” is how Cam describes his grandfather’s state when he saw his fully restored 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air.

Fred even burst into tears: he no longer dreamed of getting back behind the wheel of his beloved car. A little later, he said he knew one thing for sure: his grandson was the best.

On his social media page, Cam wrote, “He’s my best friend and he really deserves it. Shortly after, Cam succeeded in realizing his own dream: he opened a workshop where, together with his team, he restores vintage cars.

Sometimes Fred also helps her in this area, with whom they are still best friends. And Cam devotes all his free time to his wife and his grandson, because, like his grandfather, he is above all a devoted family man.
