One boy from North Los Angeles had his birthday wish come true thanks to a post on Facebook from his dad and a car dealership that knows how important dreams are.

Jacob is seven and a huge fan of Lamborghini. So much so that he has already started saving for one. His dad, who ought to get the “Awesome dad of the year award” frankly, sent a message to the North Los Angeles Lamborghini dealership.

“Hi, I’m hoping someone with a kind heart will help me,” he wrote. “My Son is 7 on 20th April, we’re having small party for him. He is a Lamborghini FANATIC. He works hard at school so he get 100% in tests, so I give him $10 which he saves towards his Lamborghini. So far his dream has cost me $400! I know it would be a dream come true for him to be able to sit in Lamborghini or get a short drive in one. His birthday party is in Hancock park at our home. Are there any Lamborghini owners who would like to make a 7 year old believe in dreams?”

Obviously, anyone who works for a supercar company knows how amazing it is to be able to see your dream machine up close (This author will never forget the nerve tingling moment the first time he saw his dream car in the flesh.) So the dealership began planning how to make Jacob’s day one he would never forget. While Jacob was celebrating with his friends, up rolled a jet black Lamborghini Aventador with an empty seat reserved for the birthday boy.

An ecstatic Jacob, grinning a grin that only can be achieved by having a dream come true, was then given a victory lap around the neighborhood. The dealership, however, had gone one step further than just giving a ride to Jacob. It had reached out to its clients to give Jacob a parade worthy of a racetrack starting grid.


From one gear head to another, happy belated birthday Jacob, and to Jacob’s dad, congratulations at winning at being a dad.
