Default Not Model A but check this guy's driving

We talk about the intricacies of driving our cars. Some even regard them as a challenge. If you want challenge, check this guy.

Thanks for posting this . It brings back many , many found memories of my younger Brother who had Cerebral Palsy . Unfortunately he was never able to walk on his own , and was in a wheel chair , he also had a fantastic memorie and a great sense of humor . I learned a lot from him , in his 27 years , and miss him .

Thanks for the post. My best friends brother had CP. and also was in a wheelchair.
He passed a few years ago, but I miss him a lot.. we had a great relationship and I admired what he did. He had a HAM radio and had postcards from all around the worls with folks he "conversed" with.
I didn't cry..... much.... seeing this mans accomplishments. Truly inspiring, thanks to another person not writing him off because of his disability!

I'll admit it I had tears ! Great to see Max make a go of the life he has been given. Makes me look at my life, to quote the Bible, to whom much is given much is required. Max is an inspiration and we share the same name my middle name is Max... Thanks for posting his story.

It brought a tear to my eyes. I had a spastic school friend who did yard work for a living. perhaps a little worse than Max. He was self sufficient and he married another spastic. A greatly liked and respected bloke in his community. When he died the town emptied and the church overflowed.
in addition I know a man with Spina Bifada. he is captain on a leading airline and flies big jets all around the world.
Isn't it pleasing to see handicapped people excel. gary

I wore full leg braces as a Kid & again, as an Adult, form the effects of POLIO, in 1937.Chief said I had the advantage of a Handicap, as it made me TRY HARDER!
I LOVE Forrest Gump, when he shed his BRACES, "someday" I'll DO THAT!
