There were a total of six winners in Ford's essay contest "The '10 Unleashed" and one of them was Roger Keeney who had not driven in over 20 years, he also happens to be blind.  The contest asked Mustang fans to write an essay in 250 words or less if they could unleash their Mustang side how would they do it.  Roger never thought his essay titled "Impossible Possibility" would catch the eye of Ford representatives but it did and he ended up winning an all-expense-paid trip to Phoenix, Arizona to drive a new 2010 Ford Mustang GT.

Obviously there were going to be some challenges given his disability but Ford was not worried as they handed over the keys to a new 2010 Mustang GT convertible.  As an added bonus NASCAR driver Tommy Kendall rode shotgun as Keeney drove speeds close to 90 mph at the Volvo Proving Grounds in Phoenix.  Keeney not only drove the car in a straight line but also got a chance to smoke the tires.

"They told me the smoke was so thick, they could barely see the car," Keeney said.  After his dream drive Keeney will return to Athens, Georgia where he works as an employment advocate for the blind.
