'Johnny I have a car but it's really old I think it's vintage may need you to work on it.'

Johnny arrived with the tow truck from his garage where he worked and we took it home to have a proper look at the purchase .
'I will come home early and we can see what needs doing to it.' He said after locking it in our garage. I was a little disappointed at this statement but knew he had to work and I settled to doing some chores while I waited with bated breath for him to return home
I paced up and down the passage at the front of the house and hoped he would return before it became dark

'At last.' I said as his truck came around the bend towards the house.

Johnny opened the garage up and we both went to see what I had bought.
