Jason Momoa has been spending his time — over the past 14 years no less — restoring the first car owned by the love of his life: Lisa Bonet’s vintage 1965 Mustang.

On Tuesday, the “Aquaman” star shared a video on social media that documented a project that’s been “14 years in the making,” the restoration of the first car that Bonet ever bought when she was 17.

“I know we can’t relive a memory, but maybe we can rebuild one,” Momoa says in the video.

“The story is this is the first car she ever bought. It’s one of three ever made and it has a lot of custom parts to it,” he said of the first car ever purchased by his wife.

Seeing the gleaming-black finished product, Momoa can’t help get emotional. “I never thought that it would look like this,” he says.
