Kristin Russell's stepfather Dave sold his 1973 Porsche 914 so that he could use the money to marry Kristin's mother, despite the vehicle being his pride and joy.

But after Dave gave up the car for parts, his stepdaughter began thinking of ways she could buy him a replacement.

Following a great deal of searching, Kristin managed to hunt one down in Arizona, and travelled hundreds of miles from California in order to pick it up.

In her Youtube description, Kirstin explains that her stepdad is simply 'awesome.'

'He coached every softball team I was on and came to every Karate tournament. He never had to do any of that. He gave up this awesome car to spend the money on marrying my mom. I saved up some money from my deployment and have been trying to figure out for a few years how to deliver back to him the same car. In the end I just waited until I found an identical one in great condition and went to get it. I'm just happy I could do something nice for a guy who has always done absolutely anything he could for me.'

Watch the video above to see what happens when Kristin shows Dave his gift - it's absolutely priceless.
