David has been the proud owner of his Porsche 356A since 1989. In 2013, David suddenly became very ill with a bacterial infection and almost lost his life. He spent 4 months in the hospital where he was in a coma for part of the time. Meanwhile, a man named Kim was working on David’s car doing a restoration. While recovering, Kim would come into the hospital and show David new pictures of the car. David says this helped lift his spirits and aid in the recovery.
David ended up losing all his fingers and both legs due to his illness. Because of his passion and love for his car, David got prosthetic legs and learned how to drive his Porsche again (which is a stick!).
