Disabled Engineering Student Turns His Stand-Up Wheelchair Into Impressive Mad Max Cosplay

September 11, 2015


This are several pictures of engineering student Ben Carpenter in his Mad Max cosplay getup. Ben was born with spinal muscular atrophy and has to use a special wheelchair to get around. And that wheelchair just so happens to lend itself perfectly to looking like Mad Max hanging from the front of a war boy's car. Very clever. You know I hung from the front of a car once as part of my annual neighborhood stunt spectacular. I don't care how many keg stands I do before my stunts this year, I'm not performing that one and getting run over again.

Keep going for several more shots, including an alternate chariot version he built (he loves welding) for when there isn't enough room for the buggy.

    This young man shall ride eternal, shiny and chrome.

  • Micheleh

    Stone cold LEGEND.

  • What is it with all of the really, really smart mother fuckers having glaring physical disabilities and diseases?

    Good for him though, that's pretty badass.

  • StraightVanilla

    I would guess that because they can't use there body the way they might want they use what they got and use it better than most who take there body for granted

  • Ozolz .

    how do you know hes a "really smart mother fucker"? a part from stephen hawking, name one more
    you cant because there are none you idiot

  • Jo Ab

    Considering the fact that he's an engineering student, I'm going to go ahead and say he's smarter than you.

  • Jim Carpenter

    Umm....he's had straight "A"s since kindergarten, was in the International Baccalaureate program in HS, is in the Burnett Honors College at UCF and is majoring in mechanical engineering. So, to answer your poorly worded, grammatically incorrect and ill-conceived question, "Ben Carpenter". Oh, and suck it, troll.

  • Micheleh

    Good grief, go outside once in a while. Even upstairs to the main living floor would help.

  • sizzlepants

    Pretty sure the fact that he's an engineering student and also built those things makes him smarter than someone trolling on the internet.

  • Jo Ab

    Pretty sure you're right.

  • Ozolz .

    An american, I should have known. You believe anything anyone says. Keep up the good work!

  • Mad Mojo

    Wow your a real Azz aren't you Ozolz, hehe, can you build this? I doubt it, hence I would say he's a smart mother fucker, I can't help but think your poor small ego and insignificant brain are lashing out in envy.. and I guess now that I realize that.. i just feel... sad for you...
