The Car Runs Fine: A Tribute to Ernie’s Garage

….and then the handle fell off

the passenger side,

the car runs fine though.

The blower doesn’t work

except on high,

the car runs fine though.

.

Needs new wipers,

the tires may just last another winter,

it runs just fine.

The window doesn’t quite close

on the driver’s side,

but that’s okay and

A little Bondo will take care of those holes.

.

When it won’t start in Park,

it’s sure to start in Neutral,

If not, it might need a jump start.

Once it gets going,

the car runs fine.

.

Just change the oil,

keep the gas tank full,

use a hanger to prop up the muffler,

and you’ll be fine.
