Dec 3, 2013 | PC Community


Donald DePonte of Honolulu brought home a brand new, handcrafted, “Sonny D” ukulele after his number was called at the BLEIZN FX Hot Rod and Classic Car Show held on Sunday, December 1 at the Pearl City Shopping Center.

"I was lucky, I didn't believe that I won a Sonny D ukulele," said DePonte. "I have to thank him because that's something terrific that he would donate."

De Ponte is also a Hot Rod and Classic Car enthusiasts and car owner and has made it his hobby since he was teenager.

"I've been around hot rods since I was 15 years old, "DePonte said. “I’m 76 years now. Nobody believes. My kids tell me, "Daddy, when you going get out?" I said when I die, Hot Rods are my enjoyment."

Congratulations to Mr. DePonte on his big win!
