Gearjammers (1)
AIRED:
Part 1 When Rocky tries to find his friend Johnny Lo Salvo to sell him some ‘OOTA’ Ball tickets at the Pacific and Western Trucking Docks at Wilmington, he unknowingly witnesses an illegal transaction involving official papers take place between Lo Salvo and Hammell. Rocky later meets with Lo Salvo, who bought his tickets elsewhere and learns that Rocky unknowingly saw the transaction and that Hammell’s goons are after him, so helps Rocky leave the docks safely Later, two of Hammell’s goons visit Jim asking the whereabouts of Joseph Rockford and they beat him up when he can’t tell them where his father is. Rocky’s home is ransacked, and after seeing LJ fix the bathroom, Jim checks his father’s diary to see the words “the usual” printed each Saturday afternoon. Jim proceeds to look for Rocky, stopping at the ‘Gearjammer’ tavern, the local liquor store. The liquor storeowner tells Jim to go to the home of Mary Ramsey, a nice lady who Rocky sees regularly without Jim’s knowledge. On his way Jim is chased by Hammell’s goons, but manages to get them into a corner and take them at gunpoint, destroying their tyres in the process. Jim meets Mary, who tells him that Rocky cancelled on her, which is unusual. Lo Salvo meanwhile feels guilty about Hammell wanting Rocky dead and tries to convince Hammell to quit the pending job. Jim goes to the docks to see Lo Salvo, but finds him dead, bleeding inside a large wooden crate. Jim returns to Rocky’s house and is hit with a frying pan by Rocky. When Jim regains consciousness the pair goes to the Police Station, where they find out that six P & W semi rigs have been hijacked and the drivers stripped of their uniforms. Jim makes a connection between the hijackings and the death of Johnny Lo Salvo – buts needs to link that and his Dad. Jim and Rocky go to the police station car park when they decide to have a lobster dinner at a restaurant around the corner. As they walk away Jim’s Pontiac Firebird explodes…moreless
