Really Stupid People Dealing with Car Problems
The kid is going to drive all the way to Colorado, over some very tall mountains.
Yet no one had the brains to replace a simple inexpensive VW fuel pump, but they did warn him about it, lol. They seemed pretty middle class and well to do, yet they couldn't even figure out that a bad fuel pump could really stymie the kid's trip
What are they doing? Why do they come here?
Some kind of instinct, memory, what they used to do.
