Tool & Die

Welcome to the Tool & Die, where you can get anything with
a motor fixed by the best mechanics in Swans Crossing.
Owned by Fats, who went on a bike trip early in the series, 
and hasn't been back since, this is where you can find 
Swans Crossing's own gearheads. Barek, the new boss, has 
done everything. Or so he says. He played for the Brewers 
Farm System, took pre-med, had poetry published, and worked 
for NASA to name a few accomplishments. None of that seems to
impress Callie Walker, his paranoid employee and the only
girl in Swans Crossing who knows her way around an engine. 
Callie doesn't believe much of what Barek says. She's been 
suspicious of him since she met him. At first, Jimmy Clayton,
Callie's potential boyfriend and Swans Crossing's other 
teenage gearhead, looks up to Barek. He believes every word 
he says and thinks Barek is the coolest person he's ever met. 
This causes many fights between Callie and Jimmy which does 
not leave much time for their romance to bloom. Close to the 
end of the series, when Jimmy finally expresses his feelings 
to Callie, he starts to believe that something is not right 
with that Barek guy.
