For the ultimate example of father-son love, look no further.

Indiana man Rick Lookebill had to give up his 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 24 years ago. He often dreamed of having it back, but never thought it was possible -- until earlier this year.

In April, his son tracked down the old car in Florida and made arrangements with the new owner to bring it back home. Then, he gave his dad an unforgettable surprise.

Originally posted to YouTube in April, the video has racked up more than 340,000 views. It resurfaced on Reddit Tuesday and drew 1,600 comments.

One user posted a similar video of two sons surprising their father by restoring his 1969 Norton Commando motorcycle.
