    One of the local fathers in the car community has a son who had a heart transplant done isn't doing to good. The heart is at 80% failure and the child has only a few months to live from what the Doctors are saying. The local community is going to be putting on a car show pretty soon for him, but his last wish is to ride in a Lamborghini. If anyone has any info on how to rent one or trying to get a dealership to come out and give him a ride in one please let me know.

    I see you're in Charlotte...I'd honestly reach out to the Howeth brothers on Instagram or at the shop and see if they'd give a ride in one of their UGR cars.

    Renting a lambo for the day shouldn’t be that expensive. Put a pot together for it and have the dad go rent it with the proceeds.

    Anthony has been doing really well, I haven't been really as active on here. I lost my mom in July and it kinda sucked the life out of me for a while. Anthony has been in remission for the last 3 months, he had 1 round of radiation and it was able to really kill the cancer cells. 3 good scans so far, next week he will be flying back out for one more scan, and if it comes back good his trips will be pushed out to every 3 months. He talks non stop now and loves to run around and ask "whats that" his hair came back thick and kinda curly. I will take some pictures of him and I will try to post them up tonight. I appreciate you guys still thinking about him.

    This stuff used to bother me before I had kids and now it makes me tear up knowing some poor guy and his family have to go through something like this.

    @slow06 If you end up renting a Lamborghini pm me and I'll paypal you some money to help out.

    I reached out to UGR, hopefully they get back to me, the shop is about 15 minutes away from my house. I think we will be able to fulfill this kids wish, it's just getting the word out there. The car community is like no other. I mentioned to the dad to try cars and coffee tomorrow and talk to a few of the local guys that have Lamborghini's, wish I could go to C&C but it's holiday season at work.

    Stuff like this sucks man, It really gets to me seeing a family going through something like this. I felt the fear of knowing we had a chance of losing Anthony, but so far he has been able to over come the odds, but to give a family a timeline on your childs life. I can't even imagine.

    Very sorry to hear that. I cannot imagine what it is like to go through this.

    Keep this thread updated man. Definitely curious to see what UGR says about this.

    Looks like UGR is going to be taking that little man for a ride. Kevin Howeth responded to one of the Facebook posts saying they would be seeing him soon. Screenshot_20191206-175102_Facebook.jpeg

    That post spread so fast, tons of people responded to it, multiple Lamborghinis are going to be showing up. This has made my day.

    Glad to see them stepping up! If I had a Lamborghini, I'd be loading it in the trailer now.
