ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) - Four disabled veterans now have their own cars thanks to a donation from the National Auto Body Council (NABC).
The NABC presented the cars to veterans in Augusta, Monday afternoon as part of its Recycled Rides program. The program involves refurbishing cars and giving them away. Retired marine Tyler Huffman suffered a spinal injury in Afghanistan and says he is astounded by the generosity.
"Because I know what these vehicles are worth and what they have to go through, and for someone to give away an automobile, of all things, it's kind of hard for me to still believe and take in. Its kind of one those things, until its sitting in my driveway its kind of still a dream," Huffman said.
The NABC gives away vehicles to veterans several times per year. To date, they have donated more than 2,700 cars.
