Pay it forward car

Des Moines (KWWL) - An Iowa family is looking to donate a special car to a family in need.

The Larson family lost their 16-year-old son, Jason, to cancer in January, but before then, a stranger donated a Ford Probe to help in their time of need.

"I said well how much are you looking for price on it, and he said we'd like to give it to ya," Suzanne Larson, Jason's mom said.

At Jason's funeral, his family decided to continue giving the car to those in need. They loaned it to a family who didn't take very good care of it. When it was returned in poor condition, a Des Moines repair shop fixed it up for free. Now Jason's family wants to find another family who could use a car.

"I just want somebody to have the joy that Jason had," Larsen said. "The joy being so much that they would spend all their time waxing it and cleaning it and vacuuming it and driving to school with the radio turned up. Yeah, just to pass it forward."
