Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Viewers don't even need to look at the rooftop ladders to know the van pictured above belongs to a person who is handy. This northwest-Denver-parked paint job tells us that the vehicle's owner is resourceful in the handling of materials and fearless about getting his hands dirty.

There is a small danger in this kind of bold visual statement that may suggest slapdash work habits and a certain lack of attention to detail. But the "Mike Coffman for State Treasurer" bumpersticker located just below the license plate suggests that the van's owner is a straight shooter who can be trusted to "hold his own."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
