Answer:  DAY OF WRECKONING

(This is a classic stinky pun!  Except, all those old classic cars were built like tanks, and I don’t think the son’s modern car would have done all that much damage.  But, they had to play things up for the pun to really work.

It looks like we have a new clue word today in “clunky”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  All of today’s jumbles came up as new!  I thought that they were all fairly challenging, with the exception of “lloofw”.  The answer letter layout was a great fifteen letter jumble.  I thought it was very cryptic.  The leading nature of the clue/question helped me get DAY OF right away.  When I ticked off those letters I was able to see the pun, wreckoning!

Super cartoon!  Hard to tell which classic car this is, but it looks like it WAS cherry.  The poor dad looks like he wants to die.  The son must have been pulling out of the garage at a high rate of speed to do that much damage.  Fun Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    That’s what I was thinking, Wes! But, I’m far from an expert on classic cars. — YUR

    I think I jinxed myself with the “last resort” comment yesterday. All the words were easy except GEYSER. No trouble with the solution so I knew I had to get G, Y, and E. It still took time to reach GEYSER and I know it was no problem the last time. So I ended up backing into this word. A difficult Jumble makes me mumble and grumble but keeps me humble.

    CLUNKY didn’t bother me. The final answer didn’t gave me much trouble, once I’d unscrambled the regular words. But COERCE sure did. Evidently we’ve had that one before, but it wasn’t on my hard-word list until now. Whichever way COERCE was scrambled last time, I must have gotten it quickly. Not today. That -ERCE ending is very unusual, making it hard for me to see.
