Synopsis
After a mysterious narrator hints that some things were never meant to change, we find Archie driving Mr. Weatherbee's Yakasaki Pigeon back from the auto shop, where the repairman has fixed the dent it sustained in Archie and Me #141. But the car is commandeered by the police, chasing two crooks who just robbed a bank and took off in a getaway car disguised as a "Chubby Charlie's Chicken Shack" float in a parade through downtown Riverdale.

Indexer Notes

This story continues Bolling's running gag about Mr. Weatherbee's car, and how it's fated to get a dent in exactly the same place every time.

Synopsis
A talking owl narrates this story of wanting something "so bad you can taste it." Archie desperately wants the status symbol of a Wheezinblatt cassette player for his new car, but can't afford it. A scruffy-looking man on a motorcycle offers to sell him one for only $20. Archie buys it, but soon after he has it installed, he learns that Mr. Weatherbee's car was robbed and the thief got away with a Wheezinblatt player, just like the one Archie has. His sense of guilt and fear that the player might have been stolen starts to overwhelm him.
