Dave's Garage and Body Shop
All broken bodies
Check-in for repair at Dave's Garage and Body Shop.
They have qualified mechanics
Who can restore the wrecks,
If not to previous form,
Then to functional jalopy status.
Dave could well be a saint
With the miracles performed there.
Brothers and Sisters!
Can't get the engine started?
At Dave's Garage and Body Shop
The technicians will get it purring again.
Poke their heads under the hood
And tinker with the brains of the operation,
Because if the engine does not crank,
Belts do not turn,
The air-conditioner fails to cool or heat.
There are no power windows
Or automatic doors locks.
But if the battery has juice,
The radio can play,
The compass lights up,
And the internal temperature flashes.
Maybe there's enough to power headlights,
Gauges, and beeps that warn,
Like if someone left the lights on
Or keys in the ignition.
You are notified if a seatbelt is unbuckled,
An airbag not able to deploy.
When lives are in danger,
These safety features give alerts.
Sometimes, it's all the mechanics have to go by.
Every customer at Dave's Garage
Has had a brush with death.
Their vehicle malfunctioned
At the most mundane moment:
In the middle of a parent conference,
In a hotel bed,
Driving home through the hill country,
Bench pressing at the gym.
Situations almost cliché in nature.
is what it boils down to.
Stranded on the road.
With flat tires on one side.
The horn silent.
The steering wheel broke in half.
"Totaled" is how drivers describe it.
The vehicles come in sputtering,
Loud . . . or without a sound,
Like a tired language,
Symptoms that need mechanical attention ASAP.
Dave takes insurance.
They work hard to get vehicles on the road again,
Safely, if not with style.
Come on in for an overhaul or tune-up.
Refurbish the shock absorbers or
Just have the ol' honker adjusted.
Dave works miracles.
