To the Editor:
I enjoyed the article on Huddy Hyman.
His dad and his uncle were two of the most honorable and respected dealers I have ever known.
I got to know Huddy in the late 1980s when I called on him for various community and industry causes. He was just like his dad and uncle: a straightforward, look-'em-in-the-eye kind of guy.
I called on him after he was awarded the Saturn franchise, and he showed me a 20-minute video about the Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tenn. He got very emotional about the film, which he had probably seen 100 times. He was so excited about the opportunity to plow new ground in this competitive and challenging industry.
Huddy Hyman is a chip off the old block for sure. I wish his two boys well.
