Meet Scotty Fenton, owner of Boon’s Car Saloon; a family owned and operated, full-service preventative maintenance and automotive repair center.
Do you have a nickname? What is it?
S: Boon – when my dad was a kid it was his nickname, so when I was born I became “little boon.”
What is one food that you will not eat?
S: My mom used to make a dish called “slum gum.” It was white bread, canned tomatoes, canned corned and Velveeta cheese. Me and my sisters called it “slug-a-muffin,” it was disgusting. I would sit there and cry as a kid and my mom would wait for me to eat it. My grandma used to make it for her.
What was your favorite movie?
S: Across the Universe
If someone was to give you a gift (money’s no object) what would you want?
S: A nice RV to travel to all the music festivals.
What is your biggest fear?
What is the one quality you admire most in others?
Where is the next place you want to visit?
S: I’m going to Philadelphia to see Phish for my birthday.
If you had to pick one place in town to take a tourist, where would it be?
S: The NorVa. I can’t even count how many shows I’ve seen down at that place.
Describe your perfect day off.
S: Out on the water jet skiing. We used to have them as a kid and I loved it, and I just bought one.
