ICKY leaned against the wall. •*•*• "I wouldn't caU it play." he said. "I've got a lot to learn before Merle and I go into business together." *T I don't understand," Ricky's father said. "It's simple," Ricky answered. "We're fixing up the coupe together If we can sell it and make a profit. Merle's going to be my partner, making custom cars. In four or five years we'll have something." "Four or five years," Ricky's .-. mother repeated, "But what about your plans for college?" "I'm not going to college," Ricky said. "Merle doesn't think I have to.* ; "Ricky, are you out <rf your mind? What does Merle know about . . .* His mother was so upset she couldn't find the right words. '- : "Merle knows a lot about cars," Ricky said. "Mo*e than I could learn in college, I bet." "Is that all you-want to know hi life?" Ricky's father asked, trying to remairs calm. Ricky nodded. "I want to build custom cars." Ricky's mother answered him angrily. "Cars! For the sake of cars you intend to give up everything and become a partner of the most shiftless, worthless, unsavory—" "Merle's just as good as anybody else in this town," Ricky said defiantly. "And he knows a lot that other people don't know." "I'm sure he does," Ricky's mother ssid bitterly. "What an Ideal you picked." "Now wait a minute." Ricky's -lather said. "Son, if you want to build custom cars, there's not a thing wrong with the idea. But that's even more reason why you should go to college Building cars is a job that takes an engineer as well as a mechanic. You could study engineering and design and metals, and when you graduated you would be equipped to take other people's cars and work on them." "You can't beat practical knowledge," Ricky said. "That's what Merle says." * * • "T'M not saying anything against practical knowledge. , It's essential But you get that I at college too The point is. with i what you are learning now. plus | your college education, you'll be 1 able to gei ahead in life, and makt something of yourself." "All 1 want is my own speed and custom shop." Ricky said, looking at his parents with a plea for understanding in his eyes. "If I'rr good, people will come to me and I'll go places. I don't want to go to college, I want to stay here and start my business.** "I see," his mother said. "I see the Merle Connor of the future." She got up and began to clear away the dishes. His father also looked as though he were in mowning. His coupe was waiting for him in the driveway In the month he'd had it, it hadn't changed much on the outside. He had fixed the spring, and it rode level now, but the real progress had been made inside. He got in and started the motor, smiling as it sounded tight ! and even. He could thank Merle for that He'd gone to Merle with a lot of fancy speed ideas. When Ricky had finished talking. Merle had thrown away his cigaret and yawned. "You might as well try to hop- up the kitchen stove as what you've got here. Planning to buy a new motor, are you?" "I can't." "All right We'll start with JOHNSON GRASS KILLER 99% Pure Sodium Chlorate 700 Lb. $m Drum I Webb Culvert Tile Co. Highway 61 at State Line Phone OSbornc 3-8414 what you've got Gel al] thi tired parts fixed, and then maybe you'U have something to work on." That's the way they had started. When he was through with his chores around the ga- , rage he would get busy on his :cai. For all the information he i had pickcc up reading the auto j magazines, it had taken Merle, ! standing by lazily, directing him with a kind of impersonal sarcasm, to teach him the basic approach to rebuilding a car. A T first Merle had been content to stand around and haw- haw at Ricky's stupidity. But the way Ricky had hung on, grimly trying to learn, had quickened Merle's interest. It wasn't long before Merle was neglecting the tires people had brought to be : fixed, and the other minor jobs ! he attracted, to give cooperation \ to Ricky.. Ricky hadn't done much driving tLat month, but Merle, always an accomplished borrower of tools he didn't have, had taken him on a tour of how to put < strength and vigor back into ! tired iron. Merle had shown Ricky how to do a valve and ring job, and while the block was out, Merle had loaded it on his truck, along with the heads and the flywheel. "I know a guy runs a machine shop owes me a favor," Merl* had said. The block had been ported and relieved, to allow better breathing and escape for the exhaust gases. The iron headi had been milled to boost compression, and the flywheel lightened. "You get some speed equipment now," Merle had grunted, "We got something to hang it on. Now you're ready for that straight pipe." That was their weak spot Anything they had to buy. They had worked on the body too. Nothing fancy, just what it took to iron out the dents, smooth it and get it ready for leading, scraping and repainting. Ricky wouldn't do much body work till he workM out n good design.
