Default Josh...AKA 03Indigo's Ride

Named Josh, not because of me, my name is Jon. Josh was a kid I cared for, his make a wish was to ride at the track with me one day...he never made it as he lost his battle with cancer, so I kept a pic of him in the car ever since...and I named the car after him......

July of 2003, what an impulse buy....walked in for a test drive, just to play, walked out 3 hours later with what has turned out to be the most fun with a car I have ever had. *A true automotive love affair.

Thanks everyone....here a pic of Josh. For a 14 year old kid, he was full of wisdom that I myself will never have.

The last time he walked, he walked with me to the parking structure of the Hospital, sat in the car and he just enjoyed some Jack Johnson and smelled the leather. It was like he was fondling my car, Coolest kid I have EVER met.
