Too many fetal alcohol babies are dropped on their heads in Cali. Must be the tremors.

When I worked for Porsche in California I sold two Porsches to the principles of a company that made custom wheelchairs for competiton....they were both in chairs themselves.

People do like to make assumptions......

Just because a guy becomes old and partially disabled doesn't mean he can't enjoy nice things. Ask me how I know.

Exactly....where is the rule that only able bodied people can own Porsches?

Yep, I've hung a placard off of the mirrors on several nice cars, one of them being a 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

On the other hand, I am aware of two different able-bodied people who obtained a handicapped placard. In one case it was because they had a relative who was elderly and they sometimes drove their elderly relative to appointments and wanted to park close to their destination. Fair enough. However, they kept the handicapped placard hanging from their car's mirror 100% of the time and they used it when they drove solo just for the convenient parking purposes it allowed.
