that doesn’t sound as fun is when we
went down to the Ferrari show talking about buying cars and the two of us are
getting ready to head home in Ryan’s new Ferrari I bought today without him
knowing about it Ryan just wanted to say thank you for being the best friend a
guy could ever have for over 30 years thanks for everything you’ve done for me
gods bless me ever since the day I first met you you don’t know how much
everybody appreciates everything you do for them you put everybody else first
and all you want is everybody else to be happy so we have everything we could
ever ask for a life full of good health good family good friends we sure don’t
need anything else to make it any better but if you’ll forgive me for sneaking
off with a company checkbook of ours I went on a little shopping spree for your
birthday you’ve bought me a lot of presents they’ve been really good so
it’s time to one-up you finally so hope this is something you can enjoy it’s not
gonna make our life any better but it sure is gonna be fun so buckle up happy
birthday good morning man you didn’t waste any
time I was actually thinking I want that done more than I wanted being clean yes
it’s just so underwhelming without it yeah without the sound that’s like half the
game right and she’s got like the voice of what’s that one woman like Franny
Frazier or whatever Joe gave MA yeah the way it’s supposed to that make sure the
hair stand up on the back of your neck yes good morning YouTube back in the
garage it’s the next morning it’s cold I do not
have equipment for this kind of cold I’ve lived in Texas long I find no
longer own winter clothes we will suffer through it for Ryan’s sake yeah that’s
what she said Carrie just got his first lesson in Ferrari ownership which is
they are really really low so we put the ramps on there and his floor jack his
floor jack won’t fit the actual lift won’t fit so he’s have to advise with
new ramps a new jack well actually this is Ryan’s problem so you know screw it
you have to buy anything well as long as we’re here that orange is beautiful all
right so he’s pulling the vacuum line and plugging it we’re mechanic I can’t
even I think he underestimated how low these are I gotta wash it for Ryan
oh man must be ceramic-coated that’s nice sorry ceramic-coated that’s crazy
nobody’s that honest Tuesday Oh didn’t really you got lunch at the in-laws
today Oh after church yeah all right bye he’s so easy he’s just making it happen
for us Oh church is right down the road from
his house he’s gonna stop at his new garage where he’s building the house and
garage five miles away we’ll just give him a call right then
you know anything view a picture yep yeah we know where he’s at we know how
long it’s gonna take him to get there perfect and we’ll all be set up oh be
great this is brilliant yeah his new Ferrari well he’s on the
phone talking about how excited he is that he saved $30 buying some $30 is
such a screaming deal he’s way to go Ryan thank goodness but you need to save
a lot more $30 to get this thing tell you Ryan $30 won’t even fill up the tank
yeah we’re not gonna get far on that 30s Miller keep saving money do it alright we’re on the way to drop
off the car or hide it I should say in the garage we’re kind of sneaking
through some backcountry roads because we don’t want anyone to see us and
accidentally tip them off so that’s our biggest concern is that
it’s a small enough town that everyone knows everyone’s stuff someone sees this
thing they’d be like why is there a Ferrari in Ryan’s driveway so we’re
trying to hide it so we’re gonna get there quick and shove it in the garage
oh that’s not being real real incognito there Carrie we almost had a disaster
that was the closest thing there was three deer on the side of the road one
of them jumped across the road it must been 2 feet in front of the car oh my
god that was so scary watching that unfold I saw the deer I couldn’t do
anything I god he can’t hear me wow that was so lucky
easy watch you watch when we get there he’s gonna be like I was I saw the three
deer running I was like oh my god oh my god oh my god that had have been inches this my dear
for the friend Meredith said he breathed on the front end because I mean how
could that happen two days of work eighteen hours of driving and we’re
three miles away and Meredith and I slam on the brakes two dead stop and deer
just two foot in front of us run right for us almost if the other deer if the
other deer would have gone they would been hit
there’s two more Kidder and they turned around all right she was crying and my
heart was racing my heart was racing because I was listening to it and then
it switched to sheer absolutely retainer and I was in tears even after it was
over nothing happened the panic didn’t stop because I still
kept going what if it would happen what if I almost there what if the front
bumper was busted when we got I kept thinking oh that’s just our luck we
would make it this far just a wackadoo everything off yeah Wow Ryan your garage
is awesome I am jealous all right we gotta push the shovel up shut the door
don’t smash it there it is how nervous are you I am
really nervous more so than about anything ever I
really like yeah worst worse than your wedding day I was gonna say I didn’t
have any worries about that uh well good recover yet yes it feels like having a
child day getting married day it is about like that is really you want it to
be perfect you’re just wanting to be overwhelmed and have a great time
because and with me that’s all he ever does for everybody it’s been a lot of
planning and a lot of work everybody’s helped make it happen that

of the day and flew him to inspect and he’s like it was it God it was there at
that place mean you went to be in there back yes at the Gulf Coast
unbelievable we went there they didn’t have it I can’t believe it you know and
they had another one that I was calling but the only reason I got on the phone
and saw that was they had one that was close but it really wasn’t perfect what
and I got on the phone I’ve slipped on the phone app just to get their phone
number and when it came up I thought well it

it went it went as good as I had ever hoped it would go yes it was fantastic
he was as surprised as ever it was a as good of experience as I can imagine and
it’s gonna last a long time it’s just gonna keep on going keep on going even
the smiles today were hard not to smile the whole day yes it was so fun allowing
other people to go on rides allowing other people to drive it they were just
overwhelmed my daughters are laughing while they’re driving let’s say how many
people got their first fried and first break dry gosh both my daughters drove
it and rode in it their friends rode in it his rode in it and I’m getting oh you
just made his whole year you know he just can’t believe it happened it still
doesn’t seem obtainable to anybody so it was just awesome it just I think it’s
gonna keep giving a lot of fun for a lot of years oh yeah we need to get you one
you you Nina Ferrari it just as soon as we
have time I can talk you into helping me out which I don’t think that’s hard no
yeah so as soon as I can free up some time and hopefully it’ll just be a
matter of a couple months here so I do consultation services and what that
basically means is people who for example like Kerry Kerry clearly knows
way more than I ever could possibly hope to know about muscle cars and working on
muscle cars even though he’s got some experience with muscle cars froy’s kind
of have their own little weird thing and I guess supercars in general kind of
have their own weird niche kind of different world and so I help people
learn more about it make the right decisions and buy the right cars and
find the right cars or even sell their cars so all those things are certain
things I can help you out with if you have any interest in doing any of those
things go visit my website normal guys supercar comm check out the shopping
section and go check out the consultation services and when we
started talking about this I mean it was literally 20 years ago in 20 years it
didn’t seem like I was able to learn much of anything about real ownership
from real owners and real experiences at all I mean I’m in a little town in the
middle of Indiana and one person that I’ve known in 20 years that had won and
there’s not a lot of stuff we can get into clubs or things that aren’t
hundreds of miles away so there’s no way to get any real experience and if you’re
thinking you’re going to get what you need out of watching YouTube channels of
just people that’s racing or driving around the street and things like that I
mean no that’s there’s no value yeah I can’t thank you guys are nothing and you
being able to provide the services because you know there was a lot of
comfort in being able to get what you know over all these years and you’re so
close you know in the area that you’re in have so many owners and you hear so
much stories and so much experience and what they went through and ownership
what they’ve dealt with on service and honestly what they have learned not to
be afraid of yeah because all you get is the stories the bad stories you know
being able to hire you to go through this experience was a huge little level
of comfort you know we always tease don’t go car shopping that your wingman
so you definitely fill that in it was fantastic to have that level of comfort
that you gave well thank you and by the way I
to give the most sincere thanks to you Carrie because participating in this
sort of thing was I mean honestly this was emotionally touching it in
incredible like truly I just posted on Facebook a little while ago and I said
this was perhaps the coolest thing that’s happened since doing this YouTube
stuff to see your friendship is it’s it’s amazing in the world I’m in right
now I see so much crap on YouTube to see true friendship and true caring and
compassion for another human being to the point where you would go this far
out of your way is just so touching and it like it almost gives me hope that
like they’re still good people out there so like don’t lose hope on people yet
right they’re still awesome people out there like Carrie so so thank you so
much for allowing me to be a participant frankly and Ryan I know you’re enjoy
your car so you need to come down to Austin I’m gonna do some fun stuff Meg
go say hi alright you guys thank you so much for watching I genuinely do
appreciate it and share this video please do that that does help up my
channel but you guys are amazing we’re gonna do a lot of car stuff it’s
gonna be sweet you

About the author


  1. Awesome video. Congrats and Happy Birthday Ryan!! Carey, you’re the true definition of a best friend. Thanks for all the content Dan!!!

  2. Ryan's story on how he saw this exact car before it was up for sale saying that was the car he wanted, reminds me of how I got my genesis coupe. I literally said the same exact thing, and my mom who was doing me a favor looking around too, I sent her the ad saying "this is the one". However the difference was I was not able to go look at the car myself, and I paid a top shipping company to ship the car to me, and obviously, it wasn't a surprise, but it sure would have been the same as this if it was!

  3. A heartwarming intro! No, the whole story is heartwarming. Thumbs up! Sadly I only got two thumbs on my hands.

  4. I wish I had friends like Casey!
    Happy Birthday Ryan!
    Another Quality Video Dan!
    Congrats on 50k!

  5. I think you you hit the nail on the head, for a lack of better cliche. You clearly helped make this person's dream come true by providing a valuable service and clear advantage when buying a car. It was very nice to see the behind the scenes action, and the final presentation. I agree, I think this is one of your best videos. It's wholesome, authentic, and of significant value.

  6. This video is so inspirational and awesome. Really lifts my spirits! I’m dealing with many Heath issues and about to be homeless due to exhausting my savings. I live in Indianapolis.

  7. That was great….great guys from the Heartland!
    Dan you nailed it when you said it was an honor for you to be a part of this.

  8. I dont get it you spent money from your joint company which means he has paid for his present 50%?

  9. Dan, this was really great, my eyes got a little moist there towards other end too. Thanks for posting all of this saga! 🙂

  10. Dan, this was the best video that you have ever done! You truly captured the emotion of Super Car ownership! The look on Ryan's face was priceless!

  11. What an amazing story of friendship. Smiling the whole way through this. Those tears being shed upon seeing his Ferrari. So touching. Amazing video Dan. Thank you for sharing this beautiful journey.

  12. (tears)…… absolutely heartwarming. ….. Happy Birthday Ryan !! You're blessed with a wonderful friend !! Enjoy that gorgeous 458

  13. Hey Dan, what do they call that 458 ? Carbon fiber emblems and shields, it's got to be a special edition ?

  14. If he did damage the car on the drive over, you could've used Inspector Todd from Beverly Hills Cop II, "Your partner, Mario Andretti Friedman, WRECKED the damn Ferrari!" 🤣

  15. Congrats all three of you…foresee many many yarns over this amongst your community.
    Carey – what color & spec did you have in mind?

  16. I think from today you should change your name into nice guy supercar 😀 it´s really cool of you Dan to help them out 🙂

    Like you said it´s nice to see true friendship still exists… Not everyone is nice in today´s world but if you look enough you´ll still find plenty of them 🙂

  17. Fantastic. This was the best video series I have seen on NGSC. What a wonderful story. Makes me want to move to that town. I miss these kinds of places where God-fearing people truly care for one another. This is a piece of original fabric from the America I grew up in. Tremendous storytelling, Dan. Thank you for sharing this story. Your personal story has inspired me, as well. Today is my birthday and this video was a real gift. Sincerely.

  18. Fantastic story of friendship. Really enjoyed it and glad Dan was able to document and share it! Great job!!

  19. What a wonderful event! Seeing the level of respect these two guy's have for each other really warms my heart. What also stood out was seeing these two hug and tell each other that they love each other. It really reminds me that there ARE good people out there. In today's world, with the instant access to all kinds of events, not to mention the media's obsession with the negative and the horrible (24-7 All the time!) it's easy to get lost and feel hopeless sometimes. Thank you Dan, for sharing this with us! You sir, are an excellent example of someone who really cares about others. It's been a real bonus to watch your channel, learn so much about Ferrari's and see a man, a human being, so happy in his element! God bless you and Meg and Mo.

  20. Best friends Carey and Ryan. Thank you for sharing your friendship and trust with one another. I’m proud to have met you both and consider you both friends.

    Carey, you next up on the price is right! Plenty of time to for you to get yours and for you both to come down to Austin (Supercars galore) Texas. We will set up a Hill Country Rally for you guys and show y’all what we get to do every week down here in Texas. Nefarious activities!
    -See you BOTH and your Supercars soon. I’ll make some barbecue sauce for ya!

  21. This was a fantastic story about giving………..these are very, very good people. What a great video and story, Dan. Thanks.

  22. What a pure into. The fact he said it won’t make life better but more fun is just spectacular. He’s a hero at heart and someone people should look up to.

  23. What a great experience for everyone involved! Happy Birthday Ryan! Enjoy DRIVING the car- no garage queens allowed!

  24. This was beautiful! I'm really envious of their friendship and huge bond. Nowadays it's really difficult to meet people you can trust 100%.
    And the Ferrari looks very sexy in white!

  25. Great video Dan…. what a Birthday present…. That ferrari looks amazing in white with red interior. Nice to see all the guys wishing him a happy birthday… 😁😁😁😁

  26. This makes me proud to live in Indy and a graduate from IU Bloomington. Wonderful, hard working people!!
