Often, it feels like the news is just a never-ending stream of one depressing headline after another. It can be so liberating to see something positive and uplifting every once in a while. Just look at the ecstatic expression on this mother's face after receiving her dream car from her son.

Mom has some seriously quirky taste too: she isn't after a muscle car or a two-seat droptop; instead, it's a 1973 Saab 99 EMS in a very '70s shade of copper at the top of her wish list.

According to the video, it took her son about a year to track down this hunk of Swedish steel and save up the money to purchase it. Though, judging from his mom's reaction, it was worth every penny. She puts together what's going on with the Saab pretty quickly and immediately starts swearing at her son – out of love, of course.

If you're feeling a little blue, consider this a much-needed pick-me-up. Watching the unbridled joy of someone getting something that they always wanted just feels wonderful.

      My first response was, "She wanted that?!?", but after watching it it's clear she's going to love the hell out of that car.

      You know, I had a 76 Saab 99 as my first car and loved it.  A lot of Saab love in the world. Doesn't have anything to do with being a hipster.  That 76 was way ahead of many car made in the day.

      I have tears in my eyes. What this son did to show love to his mother is priceless. This is a fine young man here. There is no greater love than to repay the love that parents have shown a child .That she wanted this Saab for years tells me that her children came before her own desires. In this age of selfishness and avarice, it is great to know that there are still wonderful people out there demonstrating love.

      Lovely, she appears to be genuinely thankful. When you know what you like, you know what you like and it doesn't matter what others think.

      I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  But mom love's it so that's cool.

        They're hipsters. They're not normal. Their idea of "beauty" is out of style trash which no one else like.

          You are a perfect example of what is so wrong in this world. Selfish, conceited, proud, arrogant and rude. Oh, I would use troll, but that word is so overplayed today.

          She looks like a great lady and she has a great son. Sad that you cannot recognize a great relationship. BTW, the lady's persona says vintage Saab through and through, which is great. What does your persona say? Junkyard Lada. Sad and boring.

          Well, you're certainly living up to your screen name, aren't you? Although, I have to wonder about people like you who find pleasure in life by being a dick whenever possible. Nothing redeeming about it at all.

      That was beautiful and very touching. 


      I always wished i could buy my mom the Mercedes 450 SL she always wanted. Sadly, she passed away in 2009 before i could grant her that wish.
