Hank's classic pick-up truck has just about seen its days, but Hank is very emotionally attached to his automobile and, that night when going to see an effeminate movie, Hank sheds tears, because it reminded him of his ongoing love for his truck. The mechanics say it's hopeless to fix, but Hank won't give up. That's when Bobby tells Hank about a place called Pick-Up Truck Heaven. Hank, thinking it's another mechanic, agrees to go along, until he learns it's really an auto dealership. En route home, the truck breaks down on railroad tracks. As if that weren't bad enough, a train was coming. The truck refused to start up again and the train was getting closer. Will Hank go down with his beloved machine or face up to reality and move on?
