Think about the following questions:
- Where do people usually buy second-hand cars?
- What kind of problems do old cars have?
Watch as Stephen tries to find the car of his dreams.
Ashlie: That’s it. Just need to tighten that up a bit.
Stephen: I think I've found what the problem was. It should be as good as new now.
Ashlie: We’ve finished our car maintenance course and it's already paying off. The car is going better than ever.
Stephen: Which means you can give me a lift. Come on.
Ashlie: Where are we going?
Stephen: I'll give you directions.
Ashlie: Oh, my gosh, Stephen! What are we doing here?
Stephen: So, I was thinking. You know I keep asking if I can borrow your car?
Ashlie: Yeah, so?
Stephen: And you’re always giving me lifts?
Stephen: Well, I thought it would be a good idea to get my own car.
Ashlie: Stephen, you’re always having these brilliant ideas. Cars are so expensive and you haven't got any money.
Stephen: Exactly. Da da! This is where I’m going to find my car. Come on. I want to introduce you to Gavin.
Stephen: Hi, Gavin. Good to see you.
Gavin: Hi, guys.
Ashlie: So where do all these cars come from?
Gavin: Well, they're cars that have been in accidents or broken down.
Stephen: So, can we take a look around? Will that be OK?
Gavin: Sure. Let me know if you need any help.
Stephen: Thanks, Gavin.
Stephen: Hey, Ash. What about this one?
Ashlie: Stephen, that is such an old banger. It hasn’t even got a boot.
Stephen: What about this one?
Ashlie: Stephen, that’s so big. And it’s got a smashed bonnet.
Stephen: OK, this is it! This is the one.
Ashlie: Are you sure, Stephen?
Stephen: With our new skills, Ash, it won't take long to get it looking as good as new.
Ashlie: We only did a course for beginners. We're not experts. And this needs an expert!
Stephen: And that's what Gavin‘s here for. Gavin!
Stephen: So what do you think, Gavin?
Gavin: I think you must be crazy, Stephen. It’s such an old heap.
Stephen: Yeah, she’s great, isn't she? So where do we start?
Gavin: Let's take a look at the engine.
Ashlie: Err, maybe we should start on the outside first.
Gavin: No, Ash, we really should look at the engine.
Stephen: Gavin, the engine’s the easy part. Come on. Don’t be boring. Come on, Ashlie. Let’s get started!
Stephen: What do you think, Ash? It needs a few more finishing touches, but I think it’s really coming along.
Ashlie: I think it looks great. I can’t wait to take it for a drive. What do you think, Gavin?
Gavin: I think it might be time to take a look at the engine.
Ashlie: Oh, OK. I guess we should take a look. Maybe top up the oil and other stuff before we take it for a spin.
Stephen: But don’t take too long. I want to get it out on the road.
Gavin: Erm, guys…
Stephen: What’s up? Problem with the engine?
Gavin: You could say that, Stephen.
Stephen: Oh no!
