Biography: 

A "dreamy myopic gentian-eyed mechanical wizard," Mr. Bullock is the electric engineer who maintains the town's power plant (26). His passion for the first automobile to appear in Jefferson is that of an engineer: he takes it apart "to find out why it ran" (28) and a year later builds one himself. When it is banned from the streets, he converts "an area of open land behind his house" into "a fair motordrome," or test track, where he can continue to drive it (30). An "apparently inexhaustible reservoir of surprises and capabilities," he pulls a gun when Boon attempts to take that first car away from him (28). (In other fictions Bullock is named "Joe Buffaloe.")
