When Hector arrives, the two cruise the beach strip, blasting music. after the stop to visit cousin Diego, the ride is over, but Hector has another wonderful surprise: he promises to give Daniel the Impala if the boy finishes high school and plans to go to college. With its crackling dialogue and sound effects, the text has an energetic, optimistic momentum that's echoed in the unusual collage paintings.'
