Jane is using her mom’s old but well-kept 1983 Mustang convertible to run errands in but she can’t get the damn thing started. It’s been sitting too long and the battery is weak. Her mom tries to come out periodically to start it up and keep everything charged but she’s neglected it lately and now Jane is having to fight with it.
She does get it to start up but it’s running rough and doesn’t like the gas pedal being messed with too much…it ends up dying. Jane keeps working it because her mom told her it can be hard to start and she just has to pump it a lot to get it started.
