When an accident left Alan Stevenson a quadriplegic in 2001, it changed his perspective on many things.
But with his love for cars as strong as ever, the former Targa driver is gearing up to once again inspire the next generation of Tasmanian racing enthusiasts.
On Sunday the annual Cars for Kidz event will return to the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania.

Now in its 16th year, Mr Stevenson said there would be cars, hot rods and muscle cars of all shapes and sizes aimed at giving children of all abilities a boost.
"After my accident, it made me realise that there is a lot of other people in the same situation like me," he said.
"They might be interested in cars, but maybe they can't go and see them at the big events. So I thought, lets bring it to them.
"Plus, it's an added experience for a young kid to go from just seeing the car, to actually getting to go for a drive in it."
Up to 40 cars are expected on Sunday. The free, volunteer-run event is open to people of all of ages and abilities and will run from 11am to 1pm.
