Partially Paralyzed Racer's Ford GT Can Carry His Wheelchair On Its Roof

Aside from the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawks and the Lamborghini Urus (Uruses? Uri?) of the world, most supercars aren’t practical. They’re low to the ground, and they don’t carry much at all.

Some cars are so powerfully meh that it’s almost like they have a supernatural ability to disappear from human awareness entirely.

Fall Into A YouTube Hole Of Bad Jackie Stewart Commercials Fall Into A YouTube Hole Of Bad Jackie Stewart Commercials

This past weekend, I found myself at a small gas station in San Antonio, Texas helping a random guy fix his junky, early 1990s Ford Explorer. After 20 minutes with no luck, he and I were about to give up, and I was about to—in a questionable move—give a random person a ride home. That’s when I had a stroke of genius…
