Sunday Muse -- Two loves at first sight

 A Long Ride; 
and short night 

I was tooling along 

With my Mustang top down 

Came up on Chrysler old 

Puddling along so slow 

Looking down to my left 

"No Passing" from the sign  

That evening at the ball 

Minding my own business 

Came upon chick so nice 

Smiled at me, I'd been had 

Wasn't looking for her 

Nor for anyone else 

The car pulled in for gas 

Mustang needed some too 

Chrysler wasn't so bad 

Looked better at twelve feet 

Hadn't looked for a car

Nor for anything else 

Met again at the drinks 

Iced lemon tea was had  

Talked the rest of the night 

We danced a little too 

"See you tomorrow's" said, 

little Mustang'd away 

The Chrysler was there when 

I got to my motel 

Six hundred bucks she's yours 

Deal was made, called my friend 

She was ready to ride 

The faithful Mustang cried

Mustangs do not appreciate being kicked to the curb!

Nice ride! (The mustang in the picture of course.) Top down the only way to go, unless it is raining of course...

A car-dealing man at the No Questions Motel! Quite a tale!

Not a bad deal for a sweet new set of wheels

Happy you dropped by to read mine Jim

Oh what a tale of wheels. I drove a '57 Chrysler when I was 16. Loved that big old thing.

Love this! When I first met my husband, he had an orange colored Mustang that was named Delores.
