Man in a Box

A man holding a transmission has been encased in a box since 1968.

[Stephen Francia, 07/21/2020]

The man is Paul Conrad, owner of the transmission shop down the street. The shop opened in 1968. The current wooden carving of Paul -- which replaced an earlier carving -- was made in 2013.
