    My hat is off to all the good folks who put their talents and sweat into this, just to put a smile on Ed’s face. I’ve followed this project since the rusted shards of the Nugget were unceremoniously dragged out of the woods, and watching this project take shape and snowball has been a joy. Well done! 👍

    I’m not crying! You’re crying!! My cheeks hurt from smiling through the whole video while crying happy tears. I’ve been watching these videos since you guys pulled it off the claim. The amount of love, respect, time and talent all of you have put into the Golden Nugget is beyond angelic. Not to mention the money spent on parts and paint. Massive thanks and bear hugs to every single person that had even the smallest little part in making this happen!!

    • Fred Werza says:

      Watching Ed tear up and be so thankful just made me misty-eyed — when you are 84 yrs. old, then you wake up every day feeling blessed because you know it might be your last — so happy to see an old timer get sweet moments like this!

    ‘We’ve been lying to you’ … and there seems to be some dust in my eyes. What a brilliant video. Kudos to you, Matt, and the whole extended family for what you’ve done here.

  4. Mark Phillips says:

    This has GOT to be the most wholesome, amazing thing I have EVER watched on YouTube. Hats off to everyone involved, a great job, executed well for a real humble guy, by real humble guys ( and gals). Amazing stuff

  5. Matthew Fournier says:

    The best part about doing something nice for somebody is when they recognize the amount of work you have done for them. And Ed sure does

  6. Fab Rats says:

    It was an honor to work on this project for Ed. He is one of the good ones for sure!

  7. RykerKart says:

    This is one of the best collaborations I’ve seen on youtube. Y’all did a great job and it’s wonderful to see you working all like one big family.

  8. vando624 says:

    I’ve waited for this video for 6 months. Ed’s reaction was exactly how Matt thought it would be. Genuine and appreciative. Hats off to the 84 year old ,he deserves it.

  9. Chad's Fab says:

    Matt, you and your team did an outstanding job putting this all together. By all I mean the location, the setting, the arrangement of time, the people, the video-all of it!! I can not thank you enough for allowing Stacie and I the opportunity to be a part of this whole bit of craziness called the Golden Nugget. The friends and the memories that we have made during this process will last a lifetime. I wouldn’t have ever guessed that Ed would glow like he did, he is truly a one of a kind.

    • John says:

      The friends and memories are well deserved! Thank You for being a part of getting the Golden Nugget driving. I’m sure it will outlast him and serve as a legacy to his outstanding character!

    This is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen anyone do for a friend. Hats off to all involved!
