Gay College Student Gets His Ride Pimped Out After Being Vandalized

With all of the negative press surrounding gay issues lately (Chick Fill-A anyone?) it’s nice to see that there are still good people out there willing to fight the war on bullying.

Jordan Addison is just like every other college student, except for the fact that he’s gay and has had his car vandalized four times this year because of it. But his luck changed dramatically when Richard Henegar Jr, the manager of Quality Auto Paint and Body in Roanoke, VA heard about his unfortunate situation.

“Once I saw the vandalism that was done to it, I said that’s uncalled for. We’re gonna fix your car. That’s the least we can do,” and that’s when Henegar really brought out the awesomeness. He spent over 100 hours hooking Addison up with new tires, a new paint job, tinted windows, an alarm system, and a new stereo. In total, about $10,000 worth of bad-ass awesomeness. Addison, obviously thrilled to have a new ride, says “It hasn’t looked that great the entire time I’ve had it!”

Speaking of the massive project, Henegar says “We’re glad to see he’s pleased with it.” With the help of 10 other businesses, he was able to turn an unfortunate situation for a college student into something worth noting.
