Young "Chico" is a young man who grew up in the neighborhood where Mr. Ed Brown owns a garage & gas station. Chico comes in one morning after Ed opens the garage,looking to not only get a job but be Ed's partner as well. Ed is not a nice guy, he's cranky, drinks on the job and is bigoted as well. He tells Chico,"Get out of here and take your flies with you!" Chico doesn't give up so easily though. By the end of the show he has gotten a job and takes up residence in Ed's old van,which is parked inside the garage,decked out in full Latino decor.
