Bewildered by the odious liberal democrat tendencies of his son-in-law Chip, Leon Tuggs, self-made arch-capitalist billionaire, inventor of the ubiquitous and environmentally hazardous Thingie , and author of the influential General Theory of Industrial Sex decides to rescue his grandchildren from a life of guilt, indecision, and existential anxiety, by educating them in the way the world actually works and telling them, for their own good, the things no teacher or parent in our politically correct and morally relative world could ever venture to say. These life lessons to his grandchildren are accompanied by gifts: cast-iron replicas of the cars that he has owned.30. 1:8. SCALE. 1997. MERCEDESa€“BENZ. 500SL. COUPE. THIS.
