    Why is it that Skeezix can’t figure out what’s wrong with his car considering his mechanic background and long time owner of the GA garage?

    @Mineola

    I was kind of wondering that yesterday. I know a lot of inner workings of engines have changed since Skeezix ran Gasoline Alley, but the basics are generally the same, aren’t they?

    All this silly bicker made us forget that yesterday, May 15th was Clovia’s 65th birthday! Clovia is now officially a senior citizen and eligible for social security. I think Skeezix retired from the garage in 1986. Will Clovia and Slim? Not.

    well one reason skeezik may not be able to fix the car is that he doesnt have any tools. also with all the new computers and other things he may not know how to. Just like many new mechanics cant fix older “classic” cars.

    PS. Clovia was named because of a clover like wine birthmark on her left wrist. Look up the story in ilovecomix for GA 1949.

    You need tools to repair a car especially these newer models.

    Sometimes it takes two wake up calls to wake a person and keep them awake. Ask anyone who has had a phone close to their pillow and in a small bedroom with a nightstand nearly touching their mattress.

    Slim reasoned the police might have donuts.

    No doubt Skeezix used to tune cars up and set timing
    by ear. With electronics, it was a new world.

    Nope, electronic ignition(no points or rotor) fuel injectors (no carburetor) just to name 2.

    I think that you are right on target.

    Sorry. Not a fan of Slim-bashing. Even if the majority here seems to think he deserves it.
