Ask Chris: Who Dresses All Those Wacky Mannequins at the Toyota Dealership on Lankershim Boulevard?


Gina Vasquez has worked as the customer relations manager at North Hollywood Toyota for ten years, but her unofficial duty is outfitting a fleet of about 40 plastic patrons posed around the property. General manager Chris Ashworth has used mannequins since 1990 as an offbeat attention-getter (you can see them from the 134 freeway). Vasquez gives each dummy a monthly makeover using Goodwill finds.
