Disabled Marine Corp Veteran Drives a C7 Corvette Z06 with Hand Controls

Disabled Marine Corp Veteran Drives a C7 Corvette Z06 with Hand Controls


One of the things AaronZ51 learned while he was in the Marine Corps is to adapt and improvise.

That’s why it should come as no surprise that this disabled veteran didn’t let being wheelchair bound keep him from enjoying a new Corvette Z06 that he recently purchased from our friend, Rick “Corvette” Conti in Ohio.

And, before we go any further, a big thank you for your service goes out from CorvetteBlogger to AaronZ51.

And another thank you for helping to inspire all of your fellow Corvette owners never to give up, no matter what life throws in their way.
