Motivation

The question is, is it a 292 or a 312?

Clothing Vortex

The Cornetts' cars must have been something like Charlie Brown's "kite-eating tree," the only difference being that they sucked the shirt right off you as soon as you popped the hood.

Got to be Sunday

Two of them boys is wearin' shirts.
