The Fandel and Marchand Construction Company owned by Russell Fandel

Robot-Gasser Manufacturing Company, with factories in the northeast part of
Metamora. You see, .Tim invented a device which by pressing a button fills the
tank with gas, the crankcase with oil, cleans the windshield, checks the tires, and
