Miles: It’s something, isn’t it?
Yuki: Yeah, it’s something all right. Where did you get this heap?
Miles:My uncle sold it to me. This car has been sitting in his garage for years and he finally said I could have it for a good price. I need some auto body work done on it. There’s a little damage and I want to make it look good again.
Yuki: A little damage?! The bumpers are falling off and the frame is bent. Was this car in an accident? I’m worried about its structural integrity.
Miles:It was in a small accident, but none of these cosmetic things affects how it runs.
Yuki: I mean there are dents and dings everywhere, and paint scratches so deep you might need to get a whole new paint job.
Miles:I’m sure you can work your magic on it and make it look new again.
Yuki: Wait a second. There’s rust all over the undercarriage.
Miles:When do you think you can have it ready for me to pick up?
Yuki: It’s ready now.
Yuki: Yes, this car is ready for you to pick up and take to a salvage yard!
