Heartless Vandals Destroy Handicapped Boy’s Mach 1

Regardless of age, when you’re a car enthusiast like Nino Welcome and his folks, you’re constantly thinking about your prized possession. In the case of Nino and his family, their apple of their eye was a fully restored 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1. Nino, being just seven years old, is confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life due to a debilitating disease he suffers from.

However, that hasn’t stopped this young man from being just as much of a Mustang enthusiast as any of us – nor should it. According to the Springfield News-Leader, Nino’s Mach 1 was “restored by his grandfather, Fred Welcome of Ozark, who gave it to the boy on his birthday in May.”

Nino might have to install hand controls to drive his prized possession one day, but that has never stopped him from enjoying his ’Stang every chance he got. Unfortunately, for the time being, it looks as if for Nino, his father Brett and his mother Tonia Welcome, won’t be driving his Mach 1 anytime soon. Last Thursday, it was discovered by a neighbor that the Mustang had been vandalized by an unknown assailant.
According to the Springfield News-Leader, the unknown vandal has popped open a small vent window of the family’s Mustang and had tossed a series of fireworks where the car was parked in the driveway, quickly fleeing after. It goes without saying that this was a sad and disgusting act — an unjust one that we are sure Nino and the Welcome family did not deserve.

May Pray the fleas of a thousand camels infest this little SOB's crotch for the rest of his life. Maybe then he will understand the pain he has caused.
