I bet that’s the last time he works on a Ford…
I think he found the problem.
The car in which James Dean was killed eventually fell apart the same way.
I think one of the bolts is loose.
I suspect that the wingnut that held the undercarriage on was stripped…
A friend of mine owned a ‘73 MG-B just like this guy’s car!
I’ve had scale models do things like that. usually my own fault.
See today’s Zits.
LOL! That would be my luck!
“We will need to replace a few parts, but other than that …”
Missed the lift points by Thaaaat much.
There may have been a few loose nut, including the mechanic.
Did anyone else think of ‘Don Martin’ from Mad when they read this?

Anyone else notice his second mistake was he raised it so high he can’t work on it?
We had a 1985 Ford Tempo purchased new. by the time we drove home it had overheated. Upon lifting the hood we found the oil filler cap off with oil all over the hood blanket a shop rag near the battery and a broken electric fan connector. We returned to the dealer and they stole a fan from another car to get us back on the road. When driving the automatic transmission would clunk when shifting, the dealer said it was the way we drove altho we have entirely different driving styles. A traffic lights the car wold stall. We went for an oil change and while waiting in line an AC hose exploded the dealer claimed this was not a warranted item so charged us for the repair tho the car was less than 6 month’s old. Eventually we received a $600 rebate and a large container of popcorn for the overheating problem. We had had enough and with less than 10,000 miles and under a year old decided to trade in in on a Nissan station wagon. The dealership was on Rout 22 in Union NJ it is a divided highway with stores on both sides and in the center island. Two blocks before the exit ramp the car stalled at 40 miles an hour no brakes or power steering. This %#$@*^ car had just tried to kill us, when we got to the Nissan dealership I prayed that they wouldn’t take it for a test drive. The new Nissan didn’t see the dealer again until its first service some months later.
This mechanic was obviously trained by Wile E. Coyote.
No more bashing old American cars – my first car was a 1965 Pontiac GTO. When in 1973 my husband’s older and previously used car was clearly ready for retirement, I bought a new Ford Mustang. The GTO served him well until about 14 years ago when we no longer needed 2 cars. The Mustang is still our main transportation. Please, don’t let this comment jinx us!
