Q: Hi Dennis. What brings you to Target Field today?

A: I do vinyl restoration for the stadium seats. I drove it here for work purposes.

Q: So you use your vehicle primarily for work then?

A: Mostly I just use my truck for work and sometimes for going out of town on the weekends.

Q: What’s the sign on the side here?

A: That’s my business. We do leather, vinyl, hard plastic restorations on vehicles, furniture, aircraft and boats. It really is a work vehicle.

Q: What are some features you like best about it?

A: It’s loaded and pretty much has all the features except leather, power seats. It also has the step bars. Power windows, power locks, controls on the steering wheel for the radio.

Q: Do you have any rules about the car? Do you let other people drive it?

A: Not really. I don’t just let anybody drive it, obviously. It is an automatic. Pretty much anyone I’m friends with can drive it. Of course I wouldn’t let any strangers.

Q: Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your ride?

A: I always think it looks kind of angry from the front. It’s just the way it looks.
