David is ghost-writing the second in a series of suspense novels. The character drives an Aston Martin, which David feels makes him too similar to James Bond. So David wants to blow up this car and get the hero something like a ‘72 Pinto. He wants to give the Aston a problem that requires opening the hood to start it, so bad guys could plant a bomb. Tom and Ray suggest a bad solenoid or problem on the armature that the hero usually fixes by whacking with a hammer.
