Local mechanics said there was nothing wrong with the engine ,but the old Indian never learned how to insert the keys to switch on the ignition.Inside the car were a hundred horses-ready,willing and raring to go, but the old Indian was using two horses on the outside.Many people make the mistake of looking outside for two horsepower when they should look inside where they have over hundred.
