Back in the good old days, when no one stole cars. Partly because no one knew how to drive them, anyway.

I didn't realize until I was already in the last stages of making this page that Samantha looks nothing like she did back when she first appeared. The front grill is a different shape and now she only has two windows on either side. So uh, forgive me for that one. On the bright side this "version" is probably more realistic.

For those of you keeping track at home, there are a hair over 20 pages left in this chapter. Golly shitwiggles! Hope you're enjoying this so far, check back next time for more awkwardness.

Did you know it's bad luck to not have a name for your car? (I have two: I call the Ranchero "Big Red" and my daily driver truck "The Drought", a reference to the near-constant state of my gas tank.

Also, golly shitwiggles! I'm gonna use that at the gas station next time I go to fuel up. ("$4.10 a gallon? Golly shitwiggles!")

@The_Hankerchief: I'm let down with the names my parents have given their cars... dad's is simply "The pickup" and mom always names them ordinary regular people names. I think it's weird that right now, the main reason I would want my own car would be to give it a cool name.

LOL. I think the best thing about "shitwiggles" is the non-dinner-table image that it calls to mind.

I think it's adorable when people name their cars! X) It's not mentioned in the comic yet but Chauncey calls his Ford Ka "Marcie" and I'm sure the cops in the CID would make fun of him if they knew. :D

@Oly-RRR: Oh they definitely would XD Is there a story behind the name? I forget where I got Eddie's car name from, I think it just came to me and seemed to fit.

@mitchellbravo: Nah, no specific story either, I just came up with it at some point and it stuck. Chauncey is weird that way, he's not a very sentimental sort of person but I clearly imagine him naming his car.

@Oly-RRR: Interesting!

I was once well acquainted with a car called the Shagon Wagon. It was a station wagon.

@Squirreltastic-Blue: LOL, excellent!! I'm assuming by well acquainted you don't mean in the biblical sense, though given the name of the car... O.O

@mitchellbravo: You might be surprised to know it was just a family car with a suggestive name.
