    Legally Blind Man Buys Corvette After Experimental Surgery Gives Him Sight

    Legally Blind Man Immediately Buys Corvette After Experimental Surgery Gives Him Sight
    At the age of 44, he was finally able to get a driver's license. Oh, and seeing his family for the first time was cool, too.

    A couple of years ago, however, Schickerowski signed up for an experimental surgery that would supposedly restore his vision and, as you might've already surmised, it was successful. (For any Canadians tempted to hop on their healthcare high horse right now, the procedure was done in California.)

    Like a baby hearing its mother's voice via hearing aid for the first time and subsequently attending a rock concert, Schickerowski got his driver's license at the age of 44 (passing the test on his first try, no less) and bought himself a bright yellow C7 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, as he puts it, "sight unseen." The Grand Sport pairs the body, suspension, and aero parts from the Z06 with the naturally aspirated LT1 from the regular Stingray, and it's rightfully considered the sweet spot of the C7 Corvette lineup.

    Great and inspiring story. The car is a side issue, but it's nice that the guy is now fatter and happier.

    If you want to see a Vette for the first time...he couldn't have done any better. The C7 GS & Z06(w/ Z07 aero) are probably the best looking Corvettes ever.
