    $73,000 Joystick Driven Wheelchair Minivan. what do u drive?

    This is a short video clip of a vehicle that was set up with digital driving controls for a paralyzed person. After a 120 mph motorcycle accident, and suffering a high level spinal cord injury. John J2 Mryczko never thought he would be able to drive again. Five years after his injury, with training and help to receive the very expensive equipment. He is once again on the journey down the endless highway.

    check it out at one of these sites.

    Whoa, guess I'll stop complaining about my $39,000 2001 Dodge Caravan, Sport model. It's champagne colored, no digital pic.

    How do you people afford this stuff?

    Is there anyone out there that could help me find some sort of legitimate business that I could do from home?

    please please please someone?

    I'm broke and lonely.

    If I only had some money, I could get out of my apartment once in a while.

    I've got the Wisconsin Winter Blues, and no car.

    Actually, that van is more like $100K than $73K. I have the exact same Aevit L setup with the Digipad Gold Series II and EMC controls. Mine has the push/pull gas/brake on the right and I steer with a tri-pin on the wh
    eel itself with my left arm. My van cost $75K to build but that van has a $30K upgrade with the ''assisted wheel'' option. Ain't technology great?

    Jeff's wife is smoking hot? Jeff doesn't have a wife!

    I hope your winter gets better, rathole.

    I have a Caravan too, Leschinsky. I love the interior on it but the outside sure dents easily.

    Who's Nikki!!! Sounds like a young girl. Damn, damn damn. I had you all trained, now my little bro ruined it

    Betheny I never had a car accident in my ugly Ford, the moment I got my caravan a moving van backed in next to it and tore a big hole in it very near the sliding door. The next year an elderly couple in a caravan slammed on it's breaks entering the freeway directly in front of me! My front end was smashed when i rearended them, I think $8,000 damage, but I won [my mom said the CHP officers had a crush on me ], however they had little damage.
