But what we know is that Vanessa, Savannah’s mother, is in a relationship and has a boyfriend who also makes a brief appearance in the episode. Since we do not know for sure what Savannah’s relationship status is, here’s a little headcanon. It is based on the hints present in the episode, but we hope you guys take it with a grain of salt.

Savannah, during the episode, while pitching for her car, mentions ‘taking care of the kids,’ which means she has kids. It also means she must have had a serious relationship to have kids, or she has been married in the past. While this might not be the case, Savannah never mentioned any man being involved in her life. She was focused on establishing herself and providing for her kid’s hinting the absence of a husband figure in her life.

Savannah is from a wealthy family, while her family doesn’t appear very rich in the show, the value of family’s possession stretches to millions.

Vanessa, the current head of the family and the owner of the shop, owns some very rare artifacts. Well, they are Model-A cars but nothing less of an artifact as the only piece in the world. One such piece is the Canadian made truck whose body was customized by COMMEROTAE MOTORBODY and CARRIAGES. Vanessa claims it is the single piece left in the world and values it at $35k, which is frankly a low price for one of a kind in the whole world.

Moving on to Savannah, she has also inherited a Model-A car from her grandfather. She got the 1931 Model A 400, which is a pretty rare car to find. Model-A cars were only produced from the year 1927 to 1931. So, the 1931 model is as advanced as Model-A is going to get. For the 1931 A400, Savannah values it at $50k.

From what Savannah says in the episode, we can assume she has no property and also doesn’t owns a house. Also, Savannah is in debt as she has to pay off her college, as well.
