On Wednesday morning, Midlothian Police Officer Christopher Douglas got a custom new look for his alter-ego ride.
"He said he wanted it Captain America-themed," Nick Daryanani of 'Jekyll and Hyde's Custom Car Wrap' in Dallas said.
"The real hero in him is going out and changing those kids' lives."
Officer Douglas dresses up as Captain America to visit sick children in DFW area hospitals. He brought in his Chevy Silverado to get a custom Captain America wrap, but didn't know until the reveal on Wednesday that Daryanani would not take payment for it. The wrap was free.
Douglas dropped to his knees, overcome with emotion when workers lifted the tarp to show the truck.
"I knew it was going to be remarkable, I just didn't know this," Douglas said. "Unbelievable!"
"So now when he goes back out there and he's got the truck and he's in the outfit, I'm sure a bunch of kids will have smiles on their faces when they see it," Daryanani said. "That means more to us than anything else."
The latest news from around North Texas.
Douglas said his mission has been to spread joy and smiles. He thinks the new look of his truck will help do that for children of all ages.
"Hopefully everybody seeing this will make them want to do something positive for somebody else without getting something back other than pure inner joy," Douglas said.
"It can be an endless cycle of positivity and love, if you let it."
