Since Lynn isn't what you'd call a car person, she depicts a used car lot as being more or less a sleazy place that tempts weak-minded men with the evil possibility of owning an evil car that can't ferry kids and groceries and cause Elly's mother to materialize out of the aether and call her a disgrace to the family.

(Strip Number 1378, Original Publication Date, 1 December 1987)

Panel 1: As he continues to drive, John says to himself that he wants to go home but some evil biological urge is pulling him in another direction.

Panel 2: Elly will never forgive him but here he is, in the one place he's tried to avoid for years.

Panel 3: Said evil place of evil is an evil place of irresistible temptation.

Panel 4: It's an evil car lot where an evil man evilly tries to sell John an evil late-model sports car of evil and having Marian show up and tell Elly that she's an embarrassment who should never have been born.

Summary: As we'll see later on, Elly is a stick-in-the-mud about the whole deal because the blasted things scare her shitless. Not only do their power and style intimidate her, she fears what her mother will say about this.
