  • Description

    Full titles read: "A really Cheap Car!" (new title) "Robert Dodge, a 12-year smoke-eating driver, tries out his home-built one-dollar car - !"

    United States of America.

    Various shots show a little boy, Robert Dodge, starting up a little car, getting into it and driving off out of his driveway and up a road. Coming along another suburban street he is pulled over by two motorcycle policemen.

    One of the cops asks Robert what his name is and says "What are you doing, coming speeding down the avenue, Robert?". Robert says he didn't think it mattered for a one-cylinder engine, but is told it took a two-cylinder engine to catch up with him. He is given a ticket for speeding; the other policeman says he should have a licence plate and brakes for the car. Spoilsports!
