Even terrorists hate the bastard that did this
Nino Welcome loves cars. Most of all, he loves his grandpa’s 1970 Mustang Mach 1. Nino has Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, which affects his mobility and speech. He will likely never drive a car himself, but that doesn’t stop him from going on rides. So, for Nino’s seventh birthday in May, his grandpa fixed up the Mustang himself and gave it to his grandson as a present.
Early Thursday, Nino’s prized possession went up in smoke. Someone put fireworks inside, lit them, and set the car on fire.
Nino’s family thinks someone smashed the passenger side window to get in, and lit the fireworks there. Normally, the car is parked inside the garage, but a recent garage sale meant the car was on the drive.
A neighbor heard the crackling around 3:45 a.m. and called 9-1-1 when he saw flames.
Anyone wanting to grease their way into heaven by ratting out the bastard that did this around 3:45 a.m. Thursday ought call the police. The incident happened in the Eastgate Avenue area of east Springfield Missouri, between Cherry and Sunshine streets.
a Go Fund Me account to help restore the car is https://www.gofundme.com/ninosmach1 because insurance probably isn’t going to cover it
