Growing up Jefferson County, CO, Sheriff's Deputy Kyle Bedford was homeless by the age of 17. His parents were in and out of legal trouble, and finding a ride to school and to work became a major problem.

Eventually, a family friend gave him a 1993 Buick so he could make it to school.

The car had many issues. "It would break down all the time," Bedford told KDVR. "It seemed like every two months, my car was broken down again, and I was under it in the snow wrenching on it."

When he tried to give the car back to his benefactors, they told him to pay it forward. Which is what he now does.

In his free time, he purchases cars on Craigslist, fixes them and then gives them away to people down on their luck.
