"As Is is a cheerful tale of a man's experiences with an extraordinary automobile. The automobile itself is a mystery: No one, not even the automobile dealer knows what make it is, although everyone seems sure that it must be a foreign make. The dealer thinks it is only a few years old, a 1964 or 1965 model. Its trunk is welded shut, "somebody had fixed this car so the trunk couldn't open." The story is an account of the wonderful surprises the trunk contains.
