Have you ever tried fiddling around with your car's internal parts? Perhaps, changing the engine oil or even changing the brake pads?
29-year-old Matt Stutzsman is one of those do-it-yourself wrench-turners, but unlike most of us, he was born without arms. To prove that he has the right stuff to change his own brakes, Stutzsman decided to pop by a friend's shop to change the brakes on his Pontiac Grand Prix, which he drives by using his left foot to operate the throttle and brake pedals, and the right foot for steering and other functions.
Hit the jump to watch video of Stutzsman changing his brakes with his feet without even breaking a sweat. What makes this video really compelling is that Stutzsman treats the nine-plus minute tutorial as a learning opportunity for the rest of us, and not as a way of showing what he can do without arms. Salute to you Mr Stutzsman!
