Dear Mr. van Mullekom, I have been a bilateral amputee since 2006, living independently in a retirement village in Avalon, NSW and get about in a motorised wheelchair because I chose not to have prosthetics fitted. I have always been an out and about person and decided to get my licence back which I did in June, 2007. I heard about Freedom Motors and saw their ad in a magazine and I talked to the sales people about what sort of vehicle I would need and we chose a Honda Jazz which I had delivered to the workshop later that year. I wanted a small self drive vehicle and this car suited me perfectly. Freedom Motors built me this amazing conversion with a remote controlled rear hatch and ramp enabling me to drive into the vehicle and the wheelchair locks into the Freedom Docking Machine saving all the mucking around of tying straps on and is really safe. I then transfer onto the driving seat which swivels around and goes up to the steering wheel which is fitted with the driving controls (bit tricky at first!). There is also a camera fitted at the back and comes up on the rear vision mirror when the car is in reverse making it easy to see what's going on behind me. I picked up the car in October, 2007 and have driven 32000 kms in the two years I have owned it and at present getting ready to drive from Sydney to Tasmania via the East Coast visiting friends, and as I am a watercolour artist, getting a lot of photos for my paintings. I simply can't say how much this car and the clever technology has given me the tremendous freedom to be out and about once again. I have had problems because it is so high tech, but the people at Freedom Motors have always been able to fix it and be extremely helpful. I am very happy to show my lovely little car and tell everyone how lucky I was the day I heard about Freedom Motors.
Yours sincerely, Marilyn Guion
