Cars Old And New!, also known by the title Going to Pieces, is a Carl Barks comic one-pager, featuring Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, Gladstone Gander, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Scrooge, Gladstone and Donald all have, by their own standards, an "old" car. But what this entails is radically different for each one, in terms of where they must go to get some spare parts for it…

References[edit | edit source]

  • Gladstone Gander gets spare car parts at a garage for his "old car" (curiously suggesting he's had the same one for a while, rather than kept replacing it thanks to his luck); Donald Duck visits junkyards to get spare parts for his; and Scrooge McDuck's car is such an old relic that he must get spare parts at the Museum.

Continuity[edit | edit source]

Scrooge uncovers the Rolls-Regal in Barks's 1961 tale.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The story was first printed in 1958 in Uncle Scrooge #22. It was reprinted in Uncle Scrooge #223, in the various Carl Barks Libraries, in the Australian Giant #185, and, in the United Kingdom, in Mickey and Friends #1993-46 and World Distributors #52. It is in the former of these two British printings that it received the title of Cars Old And New!, the only time it was printed with a title of any kind, although INDUCKS ascribes to it the title of Going to Pieces, without a source.
