Storyline

Marcy is up for a promotion, but to get promoted, she needs to impress her Japanese boss, Mr. Shimokawa, by serving him dinner and presenting him her grateful neighbors, the Japanese Bundys!

However, it just happens that Mr. Shimokawa hears the sound of Al's Dodge 1971 - a car missing form his collection. To ensure her promotion, Marcy needs the car for Mr. Shimokawa. But what will it take to get Al to give up his car? Written by Toni Tapola, Finland
