Strangers pay it forward to help paraplegic man who had car stolen

Posted: Updated:

In late February, Ken Maul’s custom car was stolen in southeast Portland.

Maul said Portland Police returned it the next day, but with it’s radio missing and engine not working properly.

For about twenty years, Maul has been paraplegic and drove his car using a hand control.

Fox 12 Oregon shared his story a couple weeks ago and since his story aired, Maul said strangers have stepped up to help him.

“I am a lot more relaxed and able to get around,” Maul said.

Car Toys in Tigard and Chad’s Full Service Garage offered their services to fix his radio and engine.

“I was fortunate enough not to pay anything,” Maul said.

Art Vela a manager at Car Toys said it was the right thing to help Maul.

“It’s nice to pay it forward every once in a while,” Vela said. “When you can, why not do it?”

Maul said he is grateful for all the help.

“It’s nice to drive again, freedom is important.”
