    I am okay with old cars. My current ride is a 1996 Thunderbird with 85k miles that I bought 5 years ago off ebay. Runs like a top. No room for a powerchair in the backseat of that!

    I use a regular padded bench. I took the backrest off it to give me a little more in a 30x32 inch shower stall. I am 6'3" and a lot more than 215.
