TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Video: Son gifts father with classic car he learned to drive

There's a saying that you never forget your first, whatever that may be--your first kiss, for example. For car guys, that first would be the car they learned to drive in.

Aaron Benson's father Larry learned to drive in a 1953 Hudson Hornet that Larry's father, Aaron’s grandfather, once owned. Although Larry never owned a Hornet, he is a member of the National Hudson Club and has a list of all the Hudson owners in the United States, just in case one member decides to part with his Hudson. Imagine his surprise when he discovers that Aaron has bought his dream car for him.

Judging by the video, it's clear the elder Benson is a car guy, owning a De Tomaso Pantera.

If you had the means, what old car would you give your father?
