Straws in the wind - little hints and clues as to the direction we are going. . . Man claims to own the 1934 Ford in which Bonnie and Clyde were killed in - auctioning fo $150,000. Not a night goes by on TV where there is not someone getting shot or a car crashing. . . Where are other old cars - the Licoln Kennedy was shot in, the olds from Chappaquidick, the car that Hank Williams died in, what a museum! Charles Bernard from France gets check in fancy restaurant and refuses to pay, goes to jail. He does this for a living! Shep tells about a nightmare he experienced in a restaurant in New York on a date with a girl named Myrtle. After a good meal he gets the check and finds he has no money in his wallet! He runs like hell back to the hotel, borrows the money and runs back to pay the tab.
