LAWTON, OK (TNN) - About a month ago, Danny Vest’s Amtryke was stolen from his back yard. On Saturday at the 2019 Trykes N Tread Car Show he was gifted another by his good friends at Mountain Metro AMBUCS.
“I didn’t know anything about it," said Vest. "I just knew I wanted to ride around on one of these today while I was here and she said, ‘well, I don’t know if it’s going to be given away today. Let me check and see.’ Then she wheeled it out of here, out from over on the other side, wheeled it over here and then next thing I know, I’m getting it. I didn’t have any idea.”
This brand new Amtryke is the third one given to Vest by the AMBUCS.
“They are generous," said Vest. "I don’t know why they’re so generous to me, but they’re very generous.”
It is exactly like his last Amtryke that was stolen nearly a month ago.
“He rides it all over town. You will see him from the west side to the east side. He gets all over town because of that vehicle,” said Linda Mask, chair of the 2019 Trykes N Tread Car Show. “It has helped to strengthen his legs and his arms, and he wore it out. So we gave him the second tryke, which is the one that someone stole.”
“Not having anything, this right here is what gave me my freedom to go anywhere I wanted to, not have to wait on anybody," said Vest. "Can you please come get me, or I gotta go when they go, you know. So, it’s just so much better this way.”
That freedom also helps Vest do what he loves: detail cars. Many people even say Danny Vest is the best car detailer in town.
“Danny is the main car detailer here at the show, and he helps the Sweet Temptationz every time they have a car show. He’s probably the best car detailer there is," said Mask. "He does a lot to give back to our group. He helps us whenever we need him. We have a bond. He’s our guy.”
