    Those claxons remind me of Wormy’s car, whose hooters concealed Tommy Guns!

    Mr. Jones, I mean Nitrate is more devious than he first appears. He is stealing this classic car using a whole stack of paper work that seems to be “in order”! Well, he is a con-man, so I guess that’s his skill.

    @Neil Wick

    Thanks, Neil. I wondered how he was going to “pay” for it.

    The more you get to know Silver, the more that murder seems an aberration of sorts……he seems to be a like able guy otherwise who would be more than capable of swindling someone without killing them.

    So this car belongs to the Jones family? Silver and Sprocket might soon find themselves on the wrong side of Stilletta!

    Not goofy enough for that Jones.

    If you were that other guy, wouldn’t you find it kind of weird they put a caged hyena in the back seat of a museum quality car? “Now there’s something you don’t see everyday.”

    I know. It all seems very suspicious, but all the guy says is “very well.” I’m thinking this is Flattop Jones, Jr.‘s car. I haven’t read the story (from 1956) but I’m sure someone will chime in on that. According to the Dick Tracy Depot web site, “Flattop customized his car into an arsenal of equipment designed to keep him ahead of the law.” I notice there is an opening in the middle of the back door.

    I take it that the Wonder Cars of the World Museum is the cartoon surrogate for the Volo Auto Museum north of Chicago (=Tracyville), which is more than just a typical museum, (as the wiki explains).
    But I must say that Silver’s deviousness just impresses more as each nuance unfolds! He really is something!

    fredville: Agreed. I’ve been mentioning that these two are an enjoyable pair of comic relief criminals. Their only major malfunction is that gruesome murder – and their attachment to that hyena.
    .
    That said, one has to wonder not just whether, but how many times they have used that hyena before…

    Brooke McElDowney fans: Can someone remind me when the original WWII story ran a couple years ago? The current story appears to be winding down, and I think I need a few pieces from the original puzzle to understand this one.

    They may have left left Lena back at the railroad station’s baggage area. After all, showing up with their pet would raise some eyebrows.

    @SKJAM!

    If it is Flattop Junior’s car, I hope Stilleta doesn’t show up. She’s way to single-minded on vengeance.
