84-Year-Old Man Is Finally Getting His Last Ride With The “One That Got Away”!

Patrick McKay had to save all his hard earned money to buy that 1956 Nash Ambassador during his young age! Now his loving family is fortunate enough to fulfill his last wish by giving him a ride in a similar 1956 Nash Ambassador just before he passed away at the age of 84!

Mckay who first emigrated from Ireland to America in the 1950s worked full time as a bus driver and saved all of that bits to earn his dream car , a Nash Ambassador. It was the car that was an integral part of his life, whether it was his first date with the wife or their honeymoon or be it a dozens of family vacations! Eventually after few years he had to reluctantly sell his Nash for $75 due to the growing family needs!

When a friend was in need of it he had to give off his NASH for just $75 and later the friend ended up crushing the car to scrap! So for almost 6 decades Patrick had reminisced about his dream car and it became “the one that got away”! Upon turning 84 years old, as his health declined and he started succumbing to the effects of dementia his family decided to do something great on his Nash passion! With the help of an automotive company named  Classic Car,his family arranged a nearly identical Nash from a dealer in San Diego and surprised Mckay with one last ride in that blue 1956 Nash Ambassador. The loving family is happy to share this beautiful episode of Patrick Mckay’s  life in loving memory of him!
