Gary Morrison likes the Cincinnati Bengals. He also likes working on cars.

And like an Andy Dalton pass to A.J. Green, it seemed like the perfect connection.

Morrison — who operates Gold Street Muffler and Automotive Repair in Ironton — took his love of the Bengals an extra yard or two as he an a friend modified a Volkswagen bug into a Bengals’ fan car.

“We pulled it out of a building and got carried away with it,” said Morrison.

The car was orange but they gave it another coat of paint. Morrison’s friend Darren Allen painted a Bengals’ tiger head and the “Cincinnati Bengals” name on the doors. They took vinyl and cut out tiger stripes and taped them to the car.

“We worked on it for about a month in our spare time,” said Morrison.
