Larry called the car was back at Minty’s and almost ready, asking whether we would pick it today and settle the account. They have opened until 5 PM, and I told him to show up between 4:30 and 5:00. At 4:30 Larry called again, asking whether I was still on my way.
When I arrived at our gate shortly after half past four to pick up Monique, the guard told me she already was gone. Finally getting the car made her walk. 😉
Meeting her at Minty’s she told me the car wasn’t ready yet – they wanted to align the steering wheel. The car once more was surrounded by a crowd, mechanics and customers and Larry was sharing his experiences.
He told us at each stop people did ask how much it was, and he had to reinstate that it was not his car, and it was not for sale. At the garage where he stopped to refuel he felt stupid. They had to search for a while for the filler neck, which actually is under the bonnet. He said he had an adrenaline pushing experience too.
He was pulled over by the cops. Immediately he was asking himself what he did wrong, searching for the seat belt, since he wasn’t buckled up, but there was no.
When the officers arrived at the car he was fingering for his license. But they where not interested in his license, they where not after a spot fine, but only interested in the car. They kept him for twenty minutes, watching and discussing the car.
Bottom line, Larry could enjoy the car for another night.
