Mercedes saw fit to send a film crew to Alsip in Chicago to feature this mechanic dedicated to his craft. But Bart Hickey is unique because he is blind. Influenced by his mechanic father who passed away when he was 11, Bart started working on his mom’s car because he felt she way paying too much. Seems that from that early experience, Bart Hickey found a way to support himself. He admits that the newer cars give him more trouble, unlike 70s Chevys, for example, that were much easier to work on.
Seeing this video makes you ashamed of the little things that make you upset in your daily lives, because even though Bart Hickey has a crippling disability, he has refused to let it get in the way of earning an honest living.
