This ingenious gate for vehicles (which I have never seen anywhere else) was built so that the president did not have to get out of his car to open and shut the gate. (A little joke that I am sure the president would have politely chuckled at.)

As an aside on the subject of disabilities - if you are interested: This short film on YouTube about amputee training during WWII states that the amputees were required to pass their driving test in an unmodified vehicle.

It does not mention that the president owned two Ford convertibles that were highly modified. I think the No Help Wanted film may be a little inaccurate in that guys using hooks or artificial legs probably always needed slight modifications to the car's controls.
