Let’s Talk Accessibility Vehicles

Filed under: huge glasses, The Bucket — nedryerson @ 10:40 am

I think Rod Whigham really wanted to draw some cars, but not just muscle cars like Doug Guthrie’s GTO. He lovingly recreated a GMC Safari, a sexy wheelchair-accessible light-duty vehicle for the ages. Look at it parked under the bright lights of The Bucket, gleaming like a pearl. Nice.

Gearhead Doug Guthrie is not just into high performance vehicles, but he also seems to have an interest in wheelchair-accessible vehicles. He’s up on the latest trends in such vehicles so he wonders if Vic has considered the MV-1. That’s a wheelchair-accessible light-duty vehicle from Mobility Ventures, which isn’t currently in production but must have caught Doug’s eye in Car and Driver a few years back. I don’t know Doug, the base price on those was around 40K and Vic, who couldn’t have been driving for too long, is cruisin’ around in a sixteen year old van. I’d say he didn’t consider the MV-1.

The boys in The Bucket are ready to move on from this fascinating topic. No, wait, someone wants more details on the MV-1. Fasten your seatbelts and swivel your seats. This is really going to get interesting.

  1. This isn’t the first time Rubin has covered the piece-of-shit car angle. He did it back when he introduced Tiki Jansen. Apparently, in addition to the old rusty bucket car, Tiki also lived in POS house in a POS neighborhood, which allowed Rubin to bring back undercover lesbian, HvB to Milford to strong-arm the school board into letting Tiki go from a school that was full of thugs to a place like New Trier East in Winnetka IL without any district boundary concerns. Can’t wait to see what kind of far-fetched of a snoozer story Vicky D’s POS van leads to.

  2. Johnny Cash doing Folsom Prison Blues? Nah, Man in Blond has glasses on. Can’t be.

    Kid in P3 is echoing what all us TWIMers are begging to happen. Glad somebody’s honest.
