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.

Update - Here is where we are now! We procured a 1969 Fastback last year, and have been busy ever since; Engine refresh, intake manifold, carb to EFI swap, new disk brakes, audio install (thanks David!), Magnum 500 wheels (from The Pumpkin), bodywork, prime, paint (thanks Nic!), racing stripes, hood pins, shaker, louvers, chin spoiler (from The Pumpkin), rear spoiler (thanks Marshall!), new A/C, custom interior (Mahogany & black carbon-fiber throughout), fold-down rear seat, racing seats & 5 point harnesses (to hold Nino firmly in place!), custom wheelchair carrier & cover, and the last step, swap from C4 automatic to a T5 manual 5-speed w/ Hurst shifter! We should have the car complete and on the road by this weekend!

Thank you to everyone that has helped out with this campaign! With these funds, Nino will be able to get back into his ride!

I have been friends with Brett and his family for a number of years, and I know this means a lot to them.

Since the campaign started, Brett has located a 1969 Mach 1 to begin its restoration. There has also been a number of people offering services and solutions to help get this new project off the ground.

As for the money raised, Brett is the direct beneficiary and will be withdrawing the funds in his name. All of the money will be put into the restoration of the 69 Mach 1 to a new, beautiful Pumpkin!

Thank you again to everyone - It could not have been possible without you.
