DD: Travis Diener joins us from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, by the way. That's not as exciting as when you're in Vegas because what I do is I live vicariously through you.TD: Oh, this is like Vegas. If you've ever been here, what a typical NBA player from Fond du Lac does in the offseason is purchase a $600 Mercury Marquis from 1985 and redoes it for the summer and drives it around. So that's what I've been doing the last few days.
DD: You may be the only person currently driving a Marquis that isn't on oxygen.TD: Well, it was a Mercury Marquis but now it's a convertible because we cut the roof off of it. So, it looks wonderful. I'm going to have to send pictures to The Fan.DD: So what you've just told me is there's a Pimp My Ride place in Fond du Lac.TD: Yeah, it's run by the Diener family. We just take these cars, purchase them and turn them into something special I guess you could say or something worse. One or the other.
DD: You going to drive it back to Indy.TD: For some reason, I don't think it would make it back to Indy.DD: Oh, yeah, 600 bucks for a Marquis, it can't make it.TD: They told me I can only drive it on the streets. If I take it on the highway, I'll be broke down within 4 miles out of the city.
