Default US Veteran fixes cars for free

Ladies and Gents,

Just saw this heart warming story on BBC News.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47403579

Former paratrooper and helicopter mechanic, disabled veteran Adam Ely is an inspiration.
He said doing this helps him deal with his PTSD symptoms. I know working on my car helps me relax and take my mind off things too.

I have done this sort of thing with members of my various car groups over the years. I have no problem having people come over so we can work on the vehicles. Do I go hog wild and rebuild motors and whatnot. No. But, you need a brake job, not a problem. New plugs, game on. If I am confident that we can do it in an afternoon, I will take on just about anything. Even if it is something that we can't fix, I will atleast try and tell you what is wrong so you have some knowledge when you go to get it repaired.
