Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.

CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?

TC: Since October of last year.

CM: What were you doing before then?

TC: I was a welder.

CM: What do you like most about your job?

TC: I like interacting with people.

CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?

TC: That’s a tough one. We’ve had people ask for blinker fluid and muffler bearings, as a joke. But I’d have to think about this one.

CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?

TC: Does it have to be street legal?

CM: Not necessarily.

TC: I had an ‘86 Monte Carlo SS dirt-track racer, street stock, had a 383 stroker and a three-speed transmission. Full-floater 9-inch rear end.

CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?

TC: Ride my motorcycle, go hunting and fishing.

CM: What’s your dream car?

TC: A ‘63 corvette with a split window, four-speed transmission, and I know they didn’t make it in 1963, but it would be the 427 big block that came out in ’66. Hunter green with tan leather interior.
