Gus's Model Garage

The Puzzler


TOM: I know the answer. He bribed the judge.

RAY: You ready for the real answer? Because they're racing counterclockwise around a track he wanted to make sure the Jeffersonville truck would be able to negotiate those constant left-hand turns easier than the East Norriton truck.

TOM: I knew there was something to that counterclockwise thing.

RAY: And without using any tools, he simply let a little air out of the left-hand tires of the Jeffersonville truck. You know, if you have low pressure in one of your tires, your car will tend to pull in that direction.

TOM: I like it!

RAY: Well, I'm sure we'll get some letters about the fact that the rules required that they be set to factory configuration. But I don't think anyone saw Gus do this, so I don't think there are rules violations.

TOM: No, no, I think it's great.

RAY: Yeah, and if you have a problem with this, don't call us. Call Gus Wilson.
