Storyline

In this two-part episode, Kramer and Newman scheme to make money on recycling by taking a mail truck to Michigan full of bottles and cans. But their road trip takes a turn for the worst (literally) when Jerry's car is stolen by a psychotic auto mechanic and they track Jerry's car out in the Midwest. Elaine outbids Sue Ellen Mischkie by double her budget for JFK's golf clubs and leaves them in Jerry's car. George gets a project from his boss Wilhelm but doesn't hear the other end of what he's supposed to do. Steinbrenner sees the results of George's project and has him committed to a mental hospital.

Goofs

When Jerry and Elaine go to see the car in the warehouse, the detective refers to the angle on the V6 and the turbocharger. When Jerry concludes that the car can't be his, a distressed woman identifies it as her Saab 9000 Turbo. Neither the Saab 900 or 9000 were ever available with a turbocharged V6 engine. While Jerry would claim that his model is a Saab 900S, the Saab convertible that Kramer is seen following is a 900SE, a higher up model. See more »
