Hints from the Model Garage


  Characters   Stan   Gus Wilson   Jerry Cochran   Silas Barnstable   Joe Clark 



Silas was the town "skinflint" and had a recurring role in the Model Garage series.  He was always looking for a bargain and would rattle Gus by accusing him of cheating or lying.  Neither of those sat too well with Gus but Gus was a professional.  As a professional he would still deal with Silas and bail him out of all types of trouble borne out of misguided thrift. That's Silas to the left with a young whippersnapper in tow.
