The Gassy Case of a Stolen Chevy

The Puzzler

TOM: And the answer is... they couldn't find where to put the gas!

RAY: Exactly.

TOM: You'd never in a million years figure out where it was on this car.

RAY: No, you wouldn't.

TOM: And I know because it was in the same place on my '56 Chevy.

RAY: Right. It is behind the left taillight. There was a little lever you had to turn and the taillight plunked down and there was the cover to the gas tank. And that's why they walked around the car and threw up their hands, got in and drove away; when they ran out of gas, they left it there. So who's our winner?

TOM: Our winner this week is Lou Orchard from Bel Aire, Kansas, and for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Lou is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at, with which he can get our two-CD set of Disrespectful Car Songs. This set includes such classics as 'Push My Car,' '20 Naked Pentecostals in a Pontiac,' 'If She Wasn't on Blocks,' and many, many more. Not a sentimental horsepower ballad among them, and the double CD set is yours Lou, for being our puzzler winner this week.
