Justin Rozier grew up never knowing his father, an Army first lieutenant who was killed in action in Iraq when Justin was just nine months old. So you can imagine his surprise last month when, on his 15th birthday, he received as a gift the same 1999 Toyota Celica convertible his dad once drove but had been offloaded all those years ago. How his mother found the car is a tale of luck, the power of social media and the goodwill of strangers eager to help out the family of a fallen veteran. Jonathan David Rozier was killed by an unexploded rocket-propelled grenade in Baghdad on July 19, 2003, leaving behind his newborn son and his wife, Jessica Johns.
For those who snub their noses at thrift stores because they think that there's nothing good, you might want to rethink that because in a post on Reddit, Redditor L064N revealed that he discovered an Atari 2700 console while shopping at a thrift store. He did not immediately recognize it but a quick Google search told him what he was looking at.
According to his post, "I was at the DAV Thrift Store in Oceanside today like 10 minutes before they closed and I saw this sitting on the shelf and it seemed odd to me as i’d never seen an Atari like it. Some quick googling led me to believe it was some cool rare prototype so I bought it."
