Woman surprises stepfather with long lost Porsche

PHILADELPHIA (KGO) -- Parents sacrifice so much for their children. One San Diego woman found a special way to say thanks for the sacrifice.

Years ago, Kristin Russell's stepfather decided to give up his dream car, a 1973 Porsche, for money to marry Russell's mother.

Russell spent more than two years searching for an identical car, finally finding one in Arizona.

She brought it across the country to her stepfather, Dave, in Philadelphia and decided to surprise him on his birthday. She then shared the moment on YouTube.

Reliving his youth, Dave played with the Porsche's pop-up headlights and took a drive down memory lane.
