CNN PRODUCER NOTE A gravely ill, elderly man had one of his dying wishes come true thanks to the help of locals in Victorville, California, says Jose Gonzalez . Eighty-three year old Carl Johns has cancer and his wish was to drive a classic 1956 Chevy Bel-Air. His friends and family put together an event to see his wish come true after the wife of the town's sheriff was able to track the classic car down. Gonzalez does not know the Johns' family, but attended the event after he heard about it on social media. He says it was a special event to witness. 'I just had a big smile and was so very happy for Carl,' he said. He says around 50 people turned out to support Johns. 'Carl was very happy, real emotional with tears in his eyes. A wonderful event something I will never forget,' he said.
