Ask Losanjealous: What Does Tricia Toyota Look Like?
As references to the Dickies song out number those to the real person by like a-million-to-one, where CAN a picture! at least, of Tricia Toyota be found?

Whether intentional or not, the Dickies misspelled the local TV news icon’s name. It’s actually Tritia with two t’s.
But the Tritia Toyota era ended before the advent of the internets. So even with the correct spelling, googling doesn’t turn up many hits. To satisfy your curiosity here are a couple more pics floating around…
