    agreed. I'm a c6 no tri's and drove cars for 25 yrs then switched to full size van with transfer seat. life changing, so much easier. I should have done it 10 yrs sooner but I was a bonehead. tore my left rotator cuff and bicep transferring in my cars the last 8 yrs driving them.

    How are you with transfers, and with taking the chair apart yourself? That will determine a lot about what will be the best setup for you.

    And I know it's tough, but the more you can rid yourself of "hey I'm a guy so I don't want to drive a dopey looking van", the better. Then you can focus on what will be the best long term for your function and health. But I hear you man. It's tough. I used to race motocross, only had owned trucks prior to my sci, etc. etc.

    Now I drive a Mazda5 with a home built chair loading mechanism. The transfers are easy, I don't have to take the chair apart, and it cost me next to nothing and has had zero mechanical issues. I'm a C6 incomplete.
