The damage to my new camaro

I picked the car out. Test drove it. Signed the papers and as they were pulling it into the shop to detail it the guy crashed it into a shelving unit.

I am in a wheelchair and I put temporary hand controls on the car. The guy didn't know how to take them off so tried to use them. This is what happened.

It has since been fixed better than new and I got a handful of freebies. I just was without it for 5 days but got it back last Sat.

Wow. Sorry to hear about the damage, but Im glad to hear it was all taken care of.
However...... I am very curious to see how your car has been modified to fit your needs. Do you mind posting pictures of your driving setup ??

Those must have been a horrible five days as you waited.

Very cool that you have the controls on the wheel. Must be fun!

Wow, What a story. The guy shouldn't have tried something like that w/ a new car. I would have freaked out on him. But, Congrats on your car. looks awesome.
