    Hunker- Wild picture man, really makes you realize how fortunate
    we are to live in such an accommodating country. I have several
    relatives who live in another country and they told me I am so
    lucky to have been born in the U.S. because people in other
    countries don't have the help we do. I believe we are the only
    country with an ADA law, canada might too but i'm not sure. Later
    Yes it is good to live in the USA. I work everyday to pay for my family. It is nice to live with the ADA? I dunno,I thought it was formed to help disabled and business etc to get along but I have personally found no enforcement behind the nice words the law states. I posted "my boss will not fix the bathroom thread" over a year back. The bathroom is no different even CC members said it looked "ok" until I posted more pictures. Now the only thing I have heard is how lawyers sleaze the law for the advantage of themselves. I would never take my boss a sue under the ADA but I would go for labor law, reverse discrimination, embezzlement etc. I do not sue people so this would not happen but the ADA was to bring AB to disabled closer but I see a bigger gap. BTW I love my truck

    Regarding Canada.

    I have no idea what the laws actually state here, but in my city, I have yet to have any trouble getting into any public building and any business that's not in an old building, and 99% of the buildings I've happened to have the need in have had exellent bathroom facilities.

    Also a good place for those dreaded times when you get an involuntary.

    I do have a E350 7.6lt Diesel bus that'll carry six (6) wheelchairs and is very cumbersome to tranfer to the seat. I was looking for a picture on my laptop (my main PC is in the shop) and will have to wait.

    In the meantime, ...yikes those cars are GOOD!, ...I drive a 1988 K-car.

    Cheers!
    ...and as promised here is a picture of my SuperVan

    Mike, my next purchase is a Jeep. Only cuz I like driving with the wind in my face and the bugs in my teeth.

    Yeah, I was planning to install a bar, a shower and a bed.

    Now I've got to make some seroius decisions about my SuperVan, you see it's a city transit bus that I intended to convert into an RV. I have since found out from the builder that they never intended these vehicles to be used for Highway/Interstate driving.

    So you're not far off, my friend, I could turn it into a Wheelchair limo (with a designated driver of course) and party the night away
