I am a c-4 incomplete quadriplegic. I have been paralyzed for 9 years and for the past 2 years have been in the process of getting a vehicle and hand controls through Department of Rehab. I finally got it! Check out the video I made and of me driving it. Let me know what you think.

    I loved your story. Even though you had to wait two years it was certainly worth it. I think that it is fantastic that you are so independent with your new car. I am also impressed with the way that the car is set up so that you can drive it. That may not have been possible 10 years ago. I was extremely fortunate that last month someone gave me their older wheelchair van. Mine is 14 years old with 70,000 miles on it. I cannot wait to go on some adventures.
