Jim Hart is listed as the manager.
They appear to have good credit, although there is a history of a
small overdue payment in 1999.
Business is listed as "Durable Goods".

to auto parts, although their obligation towards Toyota Motor Credit
is certainly suggestive.
That's it. As always, let me know if anything is unclear, or if you
need additional information.
