One single impression: Gold

Gold

[large picture] [super sized]
.

No
All that glitters is not gold

This glittering little red truck
is more precious than gold to me

Should you get a little red truck
take you where e're you want to go

My glittering little red truck
will cost an arm and leg to you

'Cause my precious little red truck
worth to me more than all the gold

Keep your gold leave my truck alone

Some of you have seen this little red Ford truck before.
Sorry, but I am not sorry. The poem is the truth and the little Red truck's place needed to be told.

Great pic and words. You have to get behind the wheel of the older vehicles to really know what driving is.

She's a beauty, Jim! I feel the same way about my '65 Mustang convertible. It was stolen some years back and I still miss it!

I can see why it means so much to you. It's flat out gorgeous! My brother has a vintage truck similar but sadly not restored. Wonderful poem to go with the golden red.

I can see why you'd not sell it for all the gold in the world. Lovely ode to a truly awesome truck.
