Michael loves cars. He knows them inside and out, loves to drive them, fix them, take them off-roading—in short, he’s a self-professed autophile. The 16-year-old lymphoma survivor would love to be a mechanic or a race car driver when he grows up. Michael is very attached to the 1998 Jeep Wrangler given to him by his father; it’s the car his parents brought him home from the hospital in when he was born. He’d love to take it off-roading and ultimately drive it south to California. When given the opportunity for a wish, Michael didn’t hesitate: he wished to have his Jeep refurbished.
Micheal was thrilled when his made-over Jeep was revealed to him at Trail Tire West, and poured over every detail with the professionals that made it happen. “It's the first car I ever got to learn to drive. I love cars and I love four-by-fouring. It’s nice and low and you can go anywhere,” said Michael, who was anxious to get out and put some dirt on his new, clean Jeep. “Maybe next weekend get out into the bush and have some fun. It’s too clean!”
