Through our Facebook account we had a message about a very heartfelt story from Jalopnik about a father who had a wish to give his sick son a car show. As a parent I can’t even fully explain the emotions that come over you when reading this fathers words. Even the most cold or emotionless person would be brought to tears reading this. This is not about Saab, this is about making a dream come true for an 11 year old boy who is facing death and if we can get some Saabs there too then all the better.
Originally the plea to the public was put out on a Subaru site called Scoobynet and has since gone viral. Below is the original entry by this father who is facing the unimaginable.
