Ricky's father isaid. -Gosh," Ricky said, "I couidn't be reckless in this old, car if I :wanted to. I bet it wouldn't go icver 40 if you had it wide open. iBut I*H be carefai. With every- ithing it's going to cost me, Td ibe a fool to risk getting in a -wreck?" Mr. Madison smiled slightly at Ibe sett-righteous tone that had crept into Ricky's voice. "I trust your judgment, Ricky," he said. "But from the looks of your car, I wouldn't do much driving until I had better tires oc it, and fixed it up a tittle." When bis father left, Ricky went to tt» far jide of hie car and sat down by the front wheel. Stuck. His father knew it, his mother knew it, the guys knew it and he knew it Trying to act like a big shot, he'd really shown himself up for a dope. No won- ider they were laughing at him, ithe way he had let Merle cheat him. No wonder Sharon had looked at him to disgust. He'd proved that he was a worse kid than she thought Payments . . . insurance . . . license . . . parts. ... He was stuck for a couple of hundred bucks, and he'd have to take that grocery Job now. And what did be have to show for ft? A junker nobody wanted. But he'd show them all! He'd prove he hadn't been cheated. He'd rebuild his car until he had a rod that could match wheels with anybody. K could b« done— maybe. Then they wouldn't sneer at him. Not after he showed w bat be could do. That wai the ticket all right Work quietly, and make a real bomb out of the coupe. And then, some day when they were all giving him a rough time, invite Link to drag against him. Ricky grinned, thinking about his coupe leaving Link behind. "Ricky . . ." There they were, at the bead of the drive. Link, Chub, Sherm and Jerry, sitting in their cars. Ricky scrambled to bis feet. "It's all right guys," he yelled. "Good enough," Jerry yelled back. "We brought you some stufE." * • • WTHILE Ricky watched with ** glowing eyes, the, boys took the "stuff' out of the trunk* of their cars. Ricky shook his head in wonder as each of them came toward him rolling a tire and carrying other equipment "We thought you might need these gummies," Jerry said, leaning his tire against Ricky's car. They're aH better than the ones you've got on." "Gee," Ricky said sbakily. "I sure appreciate it" "It wasn't nothing," Link grunted. "Just old stuff we couldn't use. I brought an old spring, too. It's good enough to keep that junker of yours from riding on the door handle." Chub added to his tire gift a dented chrome extension for Ricky's exhaust pipe, a death's- head gearshift knob, and a radio antenna. Ricky was grateful for the antenna, even though he didn't have a radio. It gave him a place to mount and fly the thinning squirrel tail that Sherm had brought along with some extra chrome acorn nuts for the heads. "Gee, guys," Ricky said shakily, looking at the treasures they had brought. "I'll never forget you guys. Anytime I have anything you need, you just ask." "We're just trying to make sure you won't exnlode when you're out with us," J?rry said. Ricky was reluctant to have this friends examine the car. S« J didn't want them to see how bad : it really was. "Start her up," Lit* said. If she'll start- Ricky started bis motor and got out again while it idled. Link lifted the hood and unscrewed the radiator cap. "Bubbles," be said tersely. Ricky's heart sank. Bubbles could mean a cracked block or cracked head. If that were true, he was really in for trouble^ When the motor stopped, Link pulled out the' oil dip-stick and examined it closely, then ian his fingers along it "No water or bubbles," Link said. "I guess the heads and block are okay. Probably a blown head gasket You'll want new ones anyway, when you tear this mill down and dean it up." Link got in the car and pressed the starter without turning on the key. "She clicks," he said. "Starter drive teeth are worn." He started the car. He gunned it a few times, and clouds at dark smoke rolled out of the exhaust "My carburetor needs work," Ricky said. "Get new jugs," Sherm said. "Don't fool with that otM." walked around to fttt back of the car. The put- putting at the tailpipe indicated leaky exhaust valves. Ricky put his hand down to touch tb« muffler. K was hot Well, a valve and ring job was to be expected. It was expensive, though, "I still think you ought to take it back," Jerry said. "You guys don't understand," Ricky said, needing to convince them and himself that be oufbt to keep the car. "I wanted an old junker. I'm going to take this car and work on it until H it something. Then I'll sell it and buy something decent I'd ba afraid to fool around with anything good until I knew tnort about it" "Say . . ." Chub's round face creased into a wide, admiring smile. "You got something thera, boy. Why didn't I think about that? There's a lot I'd like M learn—on your car.** (I* Be Political Announcement Th« Courier News Is authorized to announce the following candidate for the Preferential Primary July 2T For Stotc MfegtMippt Co»ntr H.
