Nino's Mach 1

Original Facebook Post: "So this just happened.
At approximately 3:35 this morning, some disgusting piece of human feces threw fireworks through the flap window of Nino's 1970 Mustang Mach I, torching what is the most beloved thing in the world to a 7 year-old disabled boy. If anybody has any information about this incident that occurred near Eastgate, between Sunshine and Cherry, please message me, or contact the Springfield Police Department.

Feel free to share this post, in hopes of getting information."

If you know Brett, or any of the other members of the Welcome family, you're probably already aware of Nino's beloved "Pumpkin Car." I cannot imagine the devistation he must have felt, seeing his ride completely toasted...


For those of you who do not know the Welcome family, they are a wonderful, hard working group of people that definitly did not deserve to have their beautiful Mach 1 go up in flames. This car was given to Nino by his grandfather who restored the car for him. The vandals took it from this awesome 7 year old boy living with Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome.


Im sure insurance is not going to 100% fully cover what it takes to replacement Nino's ride, but maybe we can help out a little bit and try to cover some lost gound. Whatever money raised will be greatly appreciated.
