Gotta see this: son surprises mom with dream car, records reaction
By Jay Dillon
Corey Wadden has a special relationship with his mom. Since he was a kid, he says she's always wanted an old Saab. So she got her to point what it was and he set out to make it happen.Corey writes on YouTube that he can always remember her talking about the car. Last year, he asked her to point out the exact car, in passing, and she pointed to a copper 1973 Saab 99 EMS.Then he got to work."After 6 months of looking, my friend found one on eBay and I reached out to the seller. It wasn't the same year or color, but it was close. It was a silver 1974," he said.He spoke with the seller for a while and found out he had a lot of collectible Saabs, one of which was the exact make, model, year, and color she wanted."It took me another 6 months to get it, but surprising her with it made it all worthwhile," Corey writes.But that's not the end of the story. Corey explains that this is small step to a bigger project."2.5 years ago, my mom lost her job and I set off on a challenge to earn enough money to financially retire her. I haven't been successful yet, but this is a big milestone in helping to improve her life. She hasn't had a car in a year, and the one before that was falling apart."
