2009 Dodge Ram: DIY Home Improvement

June 09, 2010


Living in the same town as your car-testing colleagues is a good thing, especially when you have a last-minute need for a truck.

The Sundayafternoontext conversation between me and Manager of Vehicle Testing Mike Schmidt (fellow Long Beachian) went something like this:

Me: What are you driving?

Schmidt: Ram.

Me: You busy?

Schmidt: Why?

Me: C'mon.

Schmidt: What do you need to move?

Me: Ganahl lumber yard. Need 200 ft of baseboard and door casing.

Schmidt:Game's at 4. Better be quick.

Turns out,my"rental" truck came with free labor.

That Mike Schmidt's one nice guy.
