At the church revival, Stacey sees a man walking up the road:
"He looks like…Uncle Hammer!" he cried and dashed away. I hesitated, watching him, reluctant to leave my plate unless it really was Uncle Hammer. When Stacey reached the man and hugged him, I put the plate down and ran across the lawn to the road. Christopher-John, with his plate still in hand, and Little Man ran after me.
"Uncle Hammer, where's your car?" Little Man asked after we all had hugged him.
What happened to Uncle Hammer’s car?
He got in a fight with the Wallaces and they burned the car.
He gave the car to Mr. Morrison so he could move back to his old home and be safe from the increasing dangers with the Wallaces.
He crashed it on a bridge.
He sold it to pay off the mortgage on the land.
