A daughter and veteran, forever grateful for the love and support received from her stepfather while growing up, spends years waiting for the right opportunity to show her appreciation. Finally, she found exactly the right thing.

Kristen says that her stepdad sacrificed one of his dreams in order to pay the costs to marry her mother. At an age when many young men are enamored with more worldly things, he chose to prioritize his soon-to-be wife and her daughter over his comforts.

The sacrifice was his 1973 Porsche 914 2.0 liter convertible. He had been saving money to restore the car, but when the love of his life came around, he put aside such things and went with his heart.

Kristen, knowing what he sacrificed and wanting to show him just how much she appreciated it, spent years combing “for sale” ads looking for the exact right vehicle.

She found one.

Watch their story as she traverses the continent to purchase, repair, and deliver her stepdad’s beloved sports car.

Even better, watch her stepfather’s remarkable reaction when he sees the Porsche parked in his driveway, not knowing whose it is yet!

The video, one of only four on her channel, has garnered over 10 million views in its life on YouTube.

Over a thousand people were compelled to comment. Benjamin Short’s well-received comment, “Someone snuck into my office and started chopping onions,” will give potential viewers an appropriate fair warning!
