Pretty amazing, but I'm really wondering if he ever drives the cars he works on or does he have other mechanics for that.
It seems odd to me to be a mechanic if you can never drive the cars. (Safely)

That is so impressive! I recently had refractive eye surgery and was blind for two days afterwards and I was totally helpless and lay in bed all day.

People with disabilities are so strong and it's so amazing to see they are able to do things like this!!!

True talent right there. Not like most of today's mechanics... All they're good for is to plug your car on the scanner and wait for the code lol...

Man his shop is in dire need of renovations (which saddens me). I always see little shops like his driving through rural communities and wonder if those guys were worth their salt. That is, would those shops be hidden little gems that are manned by amazing and honest mechanics like this guy. Probably not, but one can dream.
