Little Mechanic of God

“He was such a wonder, Gay was – the little mechanic of God, the St. Francis of all things that turn and twist and explode, the St. Francis of coils and armatures and gears. And if at some time all the heaps of jalopies, cut-down Dusenbergs, Buicks, De Sotos and Plymouths, American Austins and Isotta Fraschinis praise God in a great chorus – it will be largely due to Gay and his brotherhood.”

— John Steinbeck, Cannery Row
