"I don't know why they would have to buy their trucks out of state," Wiese says. "Ford dealers in Minnesota can compete with Ford dealers anywhere in the nation, and probably whip 'em. When I built my new dealership, I made sure to buy my new paint booth and my frame rack right here in Minnesota, and I would think this new bridge project would be smart enough to buy what they need locally."

Yes, but it's a MnDOT project. About the only surprising thing to me is these new trucks aren't on fire.
