It takes a great deal of time and money to build and restore cars, but the investment is rewarding for these PVA members.
Adrenaline will be pumping as fans and drivers gear up for the Indianapolis 500 this month at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Ind. But there are a few Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) members who are just as excited about the set of wheels parked in their own driveway. Whether you call them gearheads, motorheads or simply car enthusiasts, some guys just can’t stay out of the garage. These are the kind of people who have motor oil running in their veins and like to get their hands dirty. They see artistry and history reflected in a shiny door panel — and some just like to go fast. For them, all the blood, sweat, money and time is worth it to get an old piece of machinery running down the road. That sometimes means coming up with some creative ways to make it happen, taking into account the complications of a spinal-cord injury or disease (SCI/D).
