This Dad Did The Coolest Thing To His Mustang To Surprise His 3-Year-Old Son

Can you say Aww?

Brett Winek recently bought a new Ford Mustang. The Tennessee resident is also a single dad who loves his 3-year-old son, a budding car guy himself; he’s obsessed with the movie "Cars." His favorite character is Lightning McQueen. What did Winek do that made his son the happiest boy in the world? He turned his Mustang into Lighting McQueen for about $1,200. "McQueen is his favorite character, and he loves Mater, too. He has both of the characters in toy cars and mimics their sayings all the time while playing."

So Winek figured he’d surprise his son with something beyond awesome. After a bit of research, he settled on Tennessee Tint, a company that specializes in car wraps and lettering. Upon receiving Winek’s request, the company embraced the project. "We just thought it would be a fun project, when lots of times you’re lettering pluming trucks," said owner Scott Huntley. After only a couple of days the wrap was done, which can easily be removed whenever Winek wants, but we get the feeling that won’t be happening for some time. "He lit up so much when we picked up the car," Winek says. "He hopped around it and immediately wanted to jump in the driver’s seat!" Photos courtesy of Brett Winek/Facebook.
