Tim gets his hot rod in a show and, without consulting his family, he decides to sell it. Tim has a tough time coming up with the reason he did it - other than all the little zeros that have made it a big-money deal. Desperately trying to get the car back, Tim and Brad decide to buy one to rebuild instead. Even though Randy doesn't want to, Jill takes him shopping for clothes; he's afraid she'll embarrass him in front of someone he knows.
