I haven't seen another thread on this so I figured I'd start one - as I'm not in the UK I unfortunately can't attend but I'm hoping some of our UK Lotus brethren can attend and make this kids day. I don't have (nor can't) children so I can't even begin to imagine the pain this father is going through.

Lotus UK owners please represent us well.

Help A British Subaru Owner Fulfill One Last Wish For His Dying Son

The worst nightmare of any parent is facing the loss of a child. It's an unimaginable tragedy no matter how it happens.

One Subaru owner in England just learned he will soon be facing this reality with his own son, but is hoping to give him one last thrill before he moves on from this world.
Poster Zippy of the British Scooby Net forums just found out that his 11-year old son, who has already beaten cancer twice in his short life, now has two inoperable brain tumors and has around four weeks to live.

A few weeks before finding out about this diagnosis, Zippy had promised to take his son to a meet with modified cars sometime soon.

But now his timetable is condensed, so Zippy is taking the meet into his own hands:

i have arranged with FRED LAWTON LTD MELTHAM MILLS INDUSTRIAL ESTATE, MELTHAM HUDDERSFIELD,HD9 4AY to be able to use there car park for the gathering which i would like to hold on saturday the 8th of september starting from 1 pm. everybody and every type of car is welcome so please please please come if you can make it and make my little boys day a special one thank you all in advance and please put your name down on your posts to this thread so i can get an idea of numbers.
The response has been overwhelming, and right now there are 196 cars committed from Scooby Net with the likelihood of many more. If you're near that area on September 8th, stop by and help make a sick little guy's day.

This is very sad.

I can't help but thing that ALL manner of cars should attend this. Sure, his dad is into Subarus, but let's be honest, Subarus aren't exactly the most exciting cars in the world.

Let's like the kid spend his remaining days getting to experience the best of the best. I would love to see TRUE supercar owners show up and give this kid rides in them - Lambos, Ferraris, Bugattis, Maseratis. Hell, if guys can show up on a Saturday morning to show their cars of at a 'cars and coffee', they can show up for this. I think it would also be fantastic for some 'car celebs' to show up - perhaps the Top Gear guys or a Lewis Hamilton. Why go small?

It sounds terrible, but sounds like his death is imminent. If it is unavoidable that he's going out (and going out quickly), then let him go out with the mother of all bangs!!
