Discussing their legal case against them, Lum and Abner want to counter sue. Lum wants to borrow Cedric’s car to drive to the county seat.
Abner doubts whether Lum even knows how to drive, but Lum tells about his old car, and driving exploits.
When Cedric arrives, Lum learns about the trick car. Tricks like using the starter switch , the trick to get the lights to work, tricks for the brakes, and other things that don’t work right. Sounds like taking his list to the county seat lawyer is minor compared to Cedric’s overhauled car. Will it even make it out of town?
