If he wasn't before, Cam Dedman is now definitely his grandfather's favorite.
Last year, Dedman decided that for his grandfather Fred Lamar's next birthday, he would surprise him by completely restoring his 1957 Chevy Bel Air. "My grandpa is like my best friend," Dedman told WDRB. "He does everything with me." The car had been sitting in his grandparents' garage since 1976 and was in terrible shape. Throughout the entire restoration process, Dedman posted updates on social media, and family and friends who watched from start to finish flew to Kentucky last weekend to watch as he surprised Lamar with the car on his 81st birthday. When he saw the Bel Air, Lamar was stunned and, overcome with emotion, began to cry.
Lamar bought the car when he was 28, and he never thought he'd see it look brand new again. "I love it," he said. The pair has always been close and both love traveling together and classic cars, so for their next adventure, Lamar and Dedman plan on traveling across Kentucky in the Bel Air, visiting different car shows.
