According to Will Brinson of CBS Sports, Mazda plans on refurbishing, Alfred Morris’ 1991 Mazda that he calls “Bentley.”

Mazda plans on restoring Morris’ car to factory condition.

Morris says that the folks at Mazda, loving the free publicity of a Redskins fan favorite driving an old-school silver bullet, talked to his people and worked out a deal to send Bentley into the shop for six to eight weeks in order to restore Bentley.

“It’s not ‘Pimp My Ride’ or anything,” Morris said. “No big rims or fish tanks in the bank.”

Morris said the folks at Mazda would fix his “cracked dashboard,” fine tune the engine and work on the transmission to make sure he doesn’t find himself on the side of the road. There’s a chance they could throw a few perks in there as well, but nothing extravagant.

“Like a navigation system or something maybe,” Morris said.

This is a really cool story.  Morris seems like a very down to earth guy that isn’t worried about fame of fortune.  Good for him.
