Words Count

An Old Ford
An old flathead Ford
original, most
Alternator now
generator then
It makes twelve volts now
was six volts back when

Back in the 30's
up 'til '53
This one's a fifty-
one Ford pickup truck
Original most
color is two-ten
Cruising down Main Street
on Saturday night
Wife and dog up front
with the kids in back

So, are you implying that your vehicles are fossils?

You and I might qualify as fossils in more than a few folks' frames of reference ~ as does this way cool pickup! Big smile!

So would you consider this car to be an old fossil?

Laughing at the previous comments! Well I like beautifully preserved old cars. That baby blue Ford pickup was made the year I was born...hard for me to believe...

I learned to drive in a truck like that!

I love old cars...I think of them as pieces of art. On your question about the little hearts...they certainly could be Native Americans, but I was referring to the children who are coming across the border into Texas.

This particular blue shade is very nice, Dr & Mrs Jim :)

A whole slew of old gems drove by me yesterday - so very different that anything made today. I really did have the same reaction I had when I was walking the beach with amazing shells - Just overjoyed with the beauty before my eyes.
