Best Son Ever Buys Back His Dad’s First Car – A 1972 Mustang Mach 1

It was 24 years ago that Rick Lookebill of Brazil, Indiana watched his prized 1972 Mustang Mach 1 leave his backyard, he was devastated and spoke of the car often, which was his very first car. Lookebill made a few half-hearted attempts to find the car, which he did once in 1999 in Clinton, Illinois. His son decided it was time for the car to return to it’s rightful owner and located the car in Florida. The only thing his dad knew was that the car was located, he had no idea what was to come.

It was on April 28th of this year that Rick was at home with his family. His wife looked out the window and shouted, “oh my god!” As rick was approaching the window, he heard a sound he had not heard in 24 years, the roar of his old 1972 Mustang Mach 1.

After trying to compose himself in another room, he went to the very backyard where he said goodbye to the same car. Rick was greeted by his son, who bought the car back and brought it back from Florida. To say Rick was overcome, is an understatement. We learned one lesson…grown men DO cry, courtesy of the best son ever! Enjoy.
