While tooling along a country road, wealthy Harold Lockwood is brought up short when his swell new roadster breaks down. In the prescribed manner, Lockwood "gets out and gets under," and while repairing his car he is approached by pretty Pauline Curry, whose own car has suffered mechanical failure. Assuming that the oil-stained Lockwood is a chauffeur, Curry hires him to drive for her rich aunt. The old lady treats the heroine quite shabbily, prompting Lockwood to take a hand in the girl's family matters. Still pretending to be a poverty-stricken chauffeur, our hero effectively puts old Auntie in her place and claims Curry as his bride.
