Root Beer Guy

He comes up quick on the left hand side of Route 6 West. On an incline. There's enough room to pull into the business driveway and take a picture.

Root Beer Guy as Car Mechanic

It took me a moment to realize the odd character perched on an incline was once an A&W root beer guy. Instead of a hamburger, a car rests in the palm of his left hand. In his right, the mug has become a soldering tool to weld car parts together.

This fellow showcases Mile Road Collision car services, and he does the job well. We squeezed on the brakes at the sight, and narrowly missed becoming a customer of the shop. Maybe they drum up business this way. It's a little tough to get a nice photo op due to the incline, but worth the effort for an unusual rendition of the familiar mug carrying mug.
