The old Jetta’s ignition system died.
We could have resurrected it. (Although it hadn’t had air-conditioning for over a year…)
Our mechanic — who’d been kind of hinting all along… — got all set up for a date with the junk dealer.

Then their flatbed broke down.
And then it still wasn’t fixed.

So they borrowed a flatbed from somewhere else
and finally one day..
