No way of knowing where we'll be going, our adventures never end!

This story is a sequel to Car Wash


Few words in the English language are as terrifying as 'You're a car guy, right?' Minty's Mustang II is on the fritz and she wants an 'expert' opinion. If she wanted that, she really should've called an expert. Instead, she's stuck with me.

Special thanks to Admiral Biscuit for pre-reading!

and everything else Minty did to the exterior and interior of the car.

Wait. Did you just restore all the damage?

What's so scary about that?

I really hope not, but that depends on if the genie considers the engine to be part of the interior. It's Minty's car (and her luck), so that's left to the reader's interpretation. :raritywink: So choose the happy ending, or the 'Oh Minty, Minty, Minty' ending.

...But even in the worst case scenario, there's a perfectly good engine sitting next to the car. We just need to get both the car and the engine to a garage, and all will be well.

It's always followed by someone trying to get mechanical advice. People automatically assume you can miraculously diagnose (and repair!) their car. I, for one, most definitely cannot. My standard response is 'Is the check engine light on?' and if the answer is 'yes' I then respond with Minty's line about lifting the hood to check if the engine is still there.

My car’s check engine light is on. So I opened the hood and checked and the engine’s still there.

:rainbowlaugh: Oh, Minty. Never change.

A shame Discord in humanworld fics aren't quite as common.

But I like the ones where he's the art teacher or insane janitor or philosophy teacher at Canterlot High.

“I swear, if this is about my car’s extended warranty…” I mutter, taking a chance and picking up the receiver. “Hello?”

Hehehe

“I swear, if this is about my car’s extended warranty…” I mutter, taking a chance and picking up the receiver. “Hello?”

"Hello. We'd like to talk to you about your extended car warranty."

"AAAARRRRGGGHH!!!"

So…bit of a confession…I actually like the mustang II 😂

Wait this isn't an Admiral Biscuit story

Now I'm curious. Is it a human-ish genie or a ponified one?

Genie in a car, well then.

Me too! They're finally starting to get some appreciation.

I'm wearing an 'Admiral Biscuit Since 1977' t-shirt right now. Does that count?

She never will. At least not as long as I'm writing her. :raritywink:

11226387

Ponified for sure. I wouldn't expect a real genie on Earth. But Equestria? Anything goes!

I'm a genie in a car (In a car, baby)

My cousin has one. It’s a ‘74 Mach 1 with a foxbody 302

Perhaps in a way, we are all the biscuit

Equestria, where the friendship is magic and the romance is probably also even more magical. Well, usually. Sometimes, not so much.

Unfortunately no. It always stays in storage

Just because I like cars doesn’t magically make me a mechanical genius. In fact, quite the opposite is true – I’m not mechanically-inclined in the least.

So I’m not the only mechanically-inept car enthusiast on the planet…

Indeed! My cars are maintained at regular service intervals - just not by me, personally. I like my cars to run, which is why I take them to garages. :raritywink:
