Storyline

Despite his father's assurances that he will do fine, Greg is outwardly confidant but inwardly nervous about his driver's test. He does end up passing on his first try. Despite his parents stating that they will lend their cars to him on occasion, Greg would rather buy his own car. Although his aspirations exceed his pocketbook, Greg, vowing to let Mike approve anything he wants to buy, plans to go ahead to buy something immediately. Mike figures that Greg won't buy anything yet as he won't be satisfied with what he could get with only $100 in his wallet. Given the tough sales job by his friend Eddie to buy immediately or risk having someone else snatch it up in the meantime, Greg goes against his word and buys Eddie's jalopy of a car without Mike having seen it. It ends up being a lemon, even after Greg's valiant repair effort. As such, Greg decides he will pull an "Eddie" on some other unsuspecting soul to get rid of the heap of scrap metal, or will his conscience get the better of ... Written by Huggo

$100 for a 1956 Chevy convertible?
14 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite BB episodes, great family fun... Greg gets his drivers license and is naturally eager to get his first car to go along with it.. He tells his dad that he's managed to save $100 and dad is proud, but Dad also insists that Greg promise to let him take a look at any car he may be considering, and reassures Greg's mom not to worry, as he cannot possibly find a decent car for $100... Wrong! Greg's buddy Eddie, played by BB veteran Chris Beaumont, who sometimes plays Greg's friend (see episode "A Room At The Top") but more often his nemesis (see episodes "Our Son, The Man" and "Quarterback Sneak"), ever so smoothly bamboozles Greg into buying his 1956 Chevy Bel-Air convertible which provides plenty of comedy as Greg limps it onto their driveway, smoking, hissing, and moaning... Greg attempts to spruce it up with his siblings' help but without real success, and then we get that nice fatherly lecture from Mike about the buyer needing to be aware. But then Greg figures he'll pull the same stunt on one of his sweet natured and trusting friends (played by a pre-American Graffiti Charlie Martin Smith) but he ultimately cannot go through with it because of his own honest nature. Great episode with a lesson for us all, and a heartbreak to classic car lovers who know that a '56 Belair convertible in that shape today brings in offers of about $10,000....
