Oregon’s Alvord desert is a sight to behold, an ancient dry lake bed that is as flat as it is beautiful. We shot a video there a few years back, and the place holds a special place in our heart.
So we were excited to see a new feature by Mercedes-Benz, who helped a blind auto mechanic achieve his lifelong dream of driving fast, in said desert.
Blind auto mechanic Bart Hickey and his son Brendan were sent to Oregon’s Alvord Desert, along with a bright green Mercedes-AMG GT R.
Watch the touching video below, to see Bart live out his lifelong dream.
