Today my wife and I gave my father in law our 63 Fairlane for Christmas. here is the story, my father in law is a hell of a guy and a car guy. He had a nice 40 ford hot rod he sold to put his oldest boy through collage before I ever met him. He is a man of few words and is the kind of guy who always gives to others rather than get what he wants. He has been around for a few of my builds and helps-watches and looks on. He is the most talented welder I have ever met, he was a welder/fabricator for 40+ years. Retired a couple years ago and is at the age where a full build will never be done. We want him to do car stuff with our family, my boys are 9 and 5 and we do lots of car stuff with my parents. Last fall I picked up a nice original 1 owner 63 Fairlane sedan, I intended to clean it up and flip it at back to the 50's next year. He saw it and loved it in October when I got it. As a joke I told my wife we should give it to him for Christmas, I got the roll of the eyes. Fast forward to a month ago. I bought another car that was on my bucket list of cars, it needs some work to be a driver for this summer so I put the fairlane on here for sale to free up funds for the new project. That night my wife asked if I was serious when I said it would be fun to give it to her dad. The rest is history. I have been married to his daughter for 17 great years and this is is the 2nd time I have seen him get choked up, what a great feeling to pay it forward to a guy who really deserves it! Have a Merry Christmas Everybody!
