A mid-sixties man in a 2015 world...

Imagine the car below, same exact color combination with a hard top instead...

He is a man of the mid-sixties,
His age only that of an actual sixty,
He wears clothing from that era,
Even his shoes are from an earlier time,
No sneaker does he wear nor a boot,
Some people probably refer to him as an old coot…

To me he is my friend…

He loves old Studebaker cars,
He drives still his sixty four,
He wears a hat that reminds me of my dad,
In his leather coat and fedora (?) he looks like Indiana Jones,
All he needs is a whip & that will complete the look,
If you look at him you’d think of a character right out of a book…

To me he is my friend…

He builds cameras like they used in the 1800’s,
From scratch he puts them together delicately,
A man he is of a different time, most gentlemanly,
Speaks does he, of all subjects, most eloquently…
To me his is my friend…

Maybe the addition of viagra to the soft top could make it hard. Whatcha think, Ed?

That was one ugly Studebaker, no wonder the company's demise. I was in love with the 51s for their aircraft front end, rode to high school with a classmate's orange red convertible that started even at 30 below zero and went hunting with another classmate's that he got cheap, with a little bodywork because the previous owner had blown his head off in the car with a shotgun. Unable to replace the headliner, he covered all the holes with baseball cards.

Sounds like a real eccentric… A cool kind of guy to know because of his character… Kinda like you.

Classic cars,
and classic friends,
rise above the latest trends.

I had the feeling you were looking into a mirror as you wrote this
with slobbery saliva flowing off it. Is that Narcissus or narcosis? :)
