Normally, we try not to cover one story too much, especially one that is a marketing tool, but this one is just too good to pass up. We've previously told you about Roger Keeney, the man from Athens, GA that lost his sight twenty years ago and hasn't been able to drive since. As part of their 10 Unleashed program, Ford fulfilled Roger's dream to drive a new Mustang GT Convertible with Trans-Am champion Tommy Kendall, and documented the event with a series of videos.

We received a preview last month, and now Ford has released the second and third episodes showing Keeney actually getting behind the wheel. Keeney even dishes out some kindness of his own by convincing Ford to let some of his friends at the Arizona Center for the Blind drive the Mustang as well. Check out both episodes in the embedded videos after the jump.

      It's so great of Ford to do this. Kudos to them.

      Tommy Kendall is certifiably crazy. Really cool dude.

      Kudos to FORD. Roger Keeney's laugh said it all.

      Awesome that the guy was driving a stick. That's a real man.

      What a bad ass ad campaign. And the perfect car to drive in. The vert gives you a better sense of speed if you can't see things moving.

      Way to go Ford.

        • 5 Years Ago

      • 5 Years Ago
      The faces on those people was the look of pure and true happiness. I'll admit this video put a smile on my face. It's definitely something these people won't ever forget.
