"I may not be fancy and I might be poor / But I have the only car I would ever / Want and she is a part of my family"

Transcendental Sonnet #1324:

Heavy Metal Thunder


My '65 Chrysler is being repaired

I know she will make it I'm not even scared

I felt like I left her in good hands down there

When I looked back over my shoulder and saw

This morning at the Quality Auto Care

Them diving with wonder into her great maw

Where that enormous 383 V8

Has roared and wrestled with forty years of fate


She will rise to roar and wrestle forty more

I may not be fancy and I might be poor

But I have the only car I would ever

Want and she is a part of my family

Has been these forty years and I could never

Bear to hear her roar for anyone but me

I know how you feel all too well. It is amazing amd mostly (being liberal here) a man thing the relationship we share with our vehicles. I traded from a brand new car down to a second hand bump, noisy needs lots of TLC Jeep YJ because it is what I feel is most like me. Nice clean write that certainly a lot of us "guys" will really go along with.
