TEQUESTA, Fla. — A terminally ill classic car fan was able to enjoy one of his "last wishes" by taking a ride in a Pontiac GTO during a hot rod cruise on Saturday.

Ian Fike contacted his friend Tequesta Police Sgt. Raymond Korkowski and said his father, Randy Fike, only has a few weeks to live and one of his last wishes was to ride around town in a 1966-1968 Pontiac GTO.

Korkowski was able to locate one of his friends, Anthony Mastroianni, through Facebook and set up the ride.

Korkowski thought it would be a cool idea to not only have the Pontiac GTO involved, but to organize a hot rod cruise session.

On Saturday, Korkowski and the rest met up at the Tequesta police station, headed to pick up Fike at his house and did a cruise from Jupiter Island to Bridge Road and back down U.S. 1 to Tequesta.
