Special needs riding car built by the

Vancouver Island Model Engineers (V.I.M.E.)

The bottom edge is modified to include runners that just clear the steel stabilizing skids on the loading platform. This keeps the car from rocking while the wheelchair is loaded or unloaded. 

The two handles slip into square holes in the frame to let the rider hold themselves up. A security blanket more than anything else. 


The car also has a ride astride gismo that slips into locator pins to enable the car to be used for ambulatory passengers when there are no wheelchair passengers waiting to ride.
