Storyline

The danger of buying used cars that are not safe. In the series they are known as "dogs". It starts with a couple who are getting married and buy a used car. They are warned by a mechanic not to buy the car but the salesman talked them into the car. The couple end up in an accident. The husband is injured. A member of Racket Squad interviews the couple and asks why they did not get auto insurance. The couple was crossing state lines and didn't feel they needed insurance until they got to their new home. The mechanic visits the couple in Hospital and confesses that the car dealer was paying the mechanic to fix up old wrecks that have 80,000.00 miles on them (LOL). It shows old tricks for fixing up clunkers. Putting old cork in the differential....etc. And winding back the speedometer. And regrooving ply tires. Written by Ridgeback08
