    A COOL car for disabled people!

    I know many of you are not the mini-van type. I know I was not. So to combat this, I decided to put myself on a mission. To make a cool car for disabled people. I was born with Arthrogryposis, and need an accessible vehicle. So this is what I did:

    This is my Scion XB. I drive with a joystick and have full wheelchair access. I have appeared in various publications and am a part of the new Scion advertising blitz. (look for my car in the new Scion Advertisements)

    I just want you all to know that you do not have to decide on minivan or bust. There are plenty of options for all of you. some which are cheaper. My car at base was 16k, a minivan starts at 23k. (VOC REHAB paid for assistive technology, I have been sponsored for the cool stuff)

    let me know what you think.
    C'mon buh bub!

      Good for you, man! Showcasing vehicle options for people with disabilities is one of the reasons why we created a Mustang show car.

      I will. And enjoy your Scion, it looks very cool!

          Welcome to CareCure! Awesome vehicle!!! Great job!

          Wish that everyone had the opportunity (finance, ability) to drive.

                        Here's a cousin of your ride on ebay.

                        A different make though, isn't it? A far off cousin, I guess.

                          That is one cool car, but I'm waiting for a cool practical car. Family of 5 w/ a wheelchair won't fit in a Scion, or anything else cool.
                          Stupidity ain't illegal, but it sure is inconvenient.


                          Help me support the 2010 Bike MS.

                            totally if only it didn't have to lose the seating.

                              If you use a manual chair, the VW Passat Wagon is great.

                              (obviously when with others - loading w/o breaking the chair down - just fold the back, toss in rear of car)
