Storyline

Jim Nugent and his sweetheart, Bess Forrest, go auto riding. They break the speed limit law, but manage to get away. The auto number is 666 and Jim reverses it so that it reads 999. Later they are arrested and it is discovered that 999 belongs to a car used by a couple of bank robbers who have just made a good haul. Jim and Bess are pretty badly scared until the robbers are caught and brought in. Of course Jim declares that the number was hung upside down in the garage, and promises to make his machine behave in the future. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The idea is certainly fresh
19 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A farce that depends on the number plates of two automobiles. One is 999 and the other is 666; both drivers get into trouble and both turn their plates upside down. The idea is certainly fresh, and it makes a laughable picture, but there is very little to it, and it might have been carried much further. William Hopkins and Robert Burns play two rural constables. The other players are not so noticeable. The photography is clear. It was written by E.W. Sargent and produced by Arthur Hotaling. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
