Best episode of Season 4... so far.

A car freak like me should be expected to love this episode. I know
that many on the KP staff hated the episode "Car Trouble," but I never
knew how they felt about this. Most fans love it though, whether
they're car freaks or not.
Bonnie gets to flaunt her new car in Kim's face, reminding her that as
a senior, having your own car is highly recommended. Unfortunately, the
only wheels she has is her boyfriend's Fearless Ferrett moped. This
leads Kim on the pursuit of new wheels, and unfortunately, like every
other basic average girl(or boy), you have very few options. When Mr.
Dr. P. offers her a piece of... history called the "Roth SL Coupe,"
which he drove sometime before she was even born. Jim & Tim offer to
help her fix it up, in return for being their personal chauffeur
otherwise known as their "Car Monkey." Meanwhile, Motor Ed breaks Shego
out of prison, leaving Dr. Drakken behind once again. Ed is looking to
steal an incredibly dangerous rocket from the Middleton Institute of
Technology, and convert it into a hot rod, and all the while he's
making sure Shego is part of the plan, even going so far as to insist
that she dresses like a retro-1960's girl as a "disguise." The trouble
is, he never gives her a clue as to what it might be... until later,
which I'll get to.
While Kim thinks Jim & Tim using her as their car monkey is interfering
with her attempt to foil Motor Ed's supposedly fiendish plot, the
villains show up. When Kim tries and fails to chase them down, Jim &
Tim decide using her as a car monkey is no longer important. They
decide to rebuild the car again, and at first it seems like more than
they can handle. Some claim the new version of Kim's car looks like the
Lexus prototype used in the Tom Cruise movie "Minority Report," and
while that's understandable, I could swear I've seen other concept cars
that look more like Kim's super car than this. Nevertheless, when Shego
finally finds out what Motor Ed's "evil plot" truly is, it's difficult
NOT to side with her.
Two scenes stand out in this episode. After Kim is flung through the
air by Motor Ed's transforming truck, she uses a gelatin that turns
into a landing cushion, which gives her a ridiculous '80s hairdo. If I
were Ron, I would not only not mock her hair, I'd spend time kissing
her passionately, so I could have an excuse to run my fingers through
it and fluff it down for her. Then, of course there's the scene where
Wade tells Kim about the hidden "Magno-rings" in the dashboard. Hearing
Rufus humming "Here Comes the Bride" is priceless, and an indication
that the writing team of John Behnke & Rob Humphrey, not to mention the
rest of the KP Staff are milking the romantic angle of the show for all
it's worth. See? I told you that you don't have to be a car freak in
order to love this episode.
