Family gets grandpa his dream Mercedes

A video showing a grandfather’s reaction to getting his dream Mercedes has gone viral.

According to multiple reports, the video was uploaded by Olivia Cardone Hasson in New York whose parents had bought her 88-year-old grandfather a Mercedes-Benz.

According to Hasson, her grandfather was under the impression that the car, covered up in the driveway, was a birthday present for her.

Thus, when the cover is pulled off and the grandfather learns that this Mercedes 450 SL – his dream car – is for him, he gets very teary-eyed.

On top of it all, according to the family, the car was once owned by Christie Brinkley, although we’re not sure that mattered to the grandfather that much. He just seemed excited to finally be behind the wheel of his dream machine.
