Gifts come in all shapes and sizes, whether it's an Anniversary, Birthday or Mothers Day. Whatever the occasion, we all like surprises in our lives. We've all heard the saying, the bigger the better, which isn't always true. However in the case of Kristi O'Shea, from Cincinnati, Ohio it is true. Kristi's husband Dan was doing a side job for friend Donnie Rechal, and they both agreed payment to Dan would be this '66 Ford Mustang coupe. The car actually belonged to Donnie's wife Missy, which was her second Mustang she had owned, and no longer wanted it. Now we need to describe to you, "the readers" the condition of this Mustang. This '66 was sunk into the ground with a big peacock nest sitting on top, and it was so dirty you couldn't even tell what color it was.

Dan had secretly worked on the project for five years without Kristi even knowing it. Kristi figured Dan was going to do what he always does, restore it and sell it. Well this time, Dan had another idea in store for this one and pulled it off without Kristi even having the slightest clue. She was even going around asking people if they'd be interested in a Mustang when it was finished.
