While perusing the local car lot, Dave Crabtree discovers his mother's been reincarnated as a junkie old car, so he buys her and brings her home, much to the dismay of both his wife and eccentric car collector Captain Manzini.
Dave is hired by a landlord keen on evicting a tenant running a Greek Tavern (with belly dancing!) in his building. When Dave and Barb check out the place, the landlord shows up, and they must avoid being seen.
Barbara catches Dave talking to the car and soon the news of the talking car is in the papers. Manzini then tries to convince the car to come away for fame and fortune. Dave stops them and then wakes up from a dream.
