J.J. and his friends buy a car from Bookman. The problems with the car are not as big as the problem of deciding who gets to drive it next!
JJ and three friends buy Bookman's 1954 DeSoto.
Shifty landlord Nathan Bookman (Johnny Brown) sells a dilapidated used car to J.J. (Jimmie Walker) and his friends. This joint-ownership setup results in a great deal of ill will when the buddies argue over who can drive the car, and when it can be driven. As the story rolls merrily along, it's a toss-up as to which will fall apart first: the partnership, or the car.
