GoBabyGo Brings Affordable Mobility to Disabled Children

Gobabygo

It doesn’t matter if you’re 3 or 103, the ability to be independently mobile is something we all inherently need.

Ford Thunderbird

In 1957, things were looking up for the Ford Motor Company. Its cars were outselling those of arch-rival GM for the first time in a long while. One of its most popular models was the two-seater Thunderbird the guys from Dearborn introduced in 1955. It was built to go head-to-head with the Corvette, which was first unveiled in 1953. By 1957, it had sold more than 20,000 units, compared to the Chevy roadster’s 700 or so.

In the days before CGI and YouTube, Evel was his own special effect, pushing himself and his motorcycle to the edge of disaster on live TV while millions watched. But his public image as a fearless daredevil concealed the man behind the uniform, who was at the same time brave, tragic, and far more complex than most of his fans ever realized.
