A Texas teen has been dealing with the loss of his father for as long as he can remember. Justin Rozier was only 9 months old when his father, Army Lt. Jonathan Rozier, died while serving in Iraq. It was 2003 when his father passed away, but his influence remains present to this day.

His mother obviously had to find some way to make enough money to support her family, so she ended up selling her husband's 1999 Toyota Celica because she couldn't afford it. That was back in 2003, but now she had an idea that would maybe help her son handle his father's absence a little better.  

While cleaning her house she came across the registration for the old car, and had a genius idea to surprise her son. He was turning 16 soon, and to help him celebrate the milestone birthday she wanted to try and find the car.

** HELP ** Can someone please help me find this car? It's a 1999 Toyota Celica convertible. VIN jt5fg02t3x0055626 It...
