Default How much work could you possibly get?

Just curious how someone could actually land a job working out of this.
Maybe he drove another car to the estimate but showing up for work in this, I would tell him to leave.

The front and left side are in worse shape but I was standing next to him in the bank and he would have seen me taking the pics.

lol! We've had our work van for 10+ years and I don't think there's a drop of paint on the body that doesn't belong. I wonder how many driveways he's spilled paint on, and who in right mind would hire that guy?

I actually have received a lot compliments about my car. And Yes I drive that to my estimates, it's been a workhorse.

Ohh BTW I'm going to do some graphics as soon as I have some time available.

True.

Obviously can't read worth a damn though. Look at the sign and which direction his car is pointing.

I agree, I bought 2011 F-150 crew cab to drive out to do estimates. That first impression is gonna make or brake it with some of our clients. I think the trucks lucky because we have had a good year! Not to take anything away from this guy he may do excellent work and just doesn't care about what he drives. It seems to get a lot of attention. We have one in our area that drives something like this that I know personally and he does great work.

You all are assuming he isn't an active PT member

I started with a minivan and I thought that was embarrassing.

proof of the power of word of mouth referalls.

I have used my 2001 lumina for the lasy few years. The backseat folds down to stealthily hide an 8' stepladder and any gear. Plus it gets 25mpg city. Retired it last month sadly.

He'd like to wash it but is afraid it will fall apart if he does.
