This is the second poem about a nostalgia-themed resteraunt and catering service which was destroyed by a 206 fire. Some of the items survived and were displayed in the business' new location and they still hold many memories.

A western Duke,

a debonair Bat,

brave, courageous and bold,

riding for justice and the law

on screens small and large.


Tod and Buzz, gettin' their kicks on 66

and there's the sign of the guy 

with the blue bow tie,

should the 'vette need an oil change.


Spacemen and starlets,

stately old sportsmen

alwys buying Chesterfields.


Jan and Dean and Mitchum,

the Beach Boys and bootleggers,

Dead man's curve and the Thunder Road,

won't come back from either place.


Natalie Wood trying to give

the rebel a cause.

The moon was glowing on a

quiet Kansas picnic

when Holden showed up.


Squealing tires,

a blazing gun,

listen to 'LS each Sunday,

it comes on like...


have a Coke and  a smile

in a friendly place

on the Bonpas,

Zing! What a feeling.


They're all gone now,

but in our dreams and memories,

we can stop and reminisce

while filling up at the Speedway pump.
