Default another poem

When the internet was young, so many moons ago,
Our Tripper had a dream to let his passion show.

He created a forum site to showcase older cars.
The resurrection of old junk things into lots of stars.

Many people all 'round the globe sought to participate.
"Be nice" is all Tripper said as he let us through the gate.

We watched each others cars come alive, and were thrilled
And each guys work, tinkering brought forward his own build.

We joined to show our work, and for comradery,
Thank You Tripper for building this ratrod community.

He walked over to the barn, pulling open the big door
He couldnít believe his eyes, the deuce coupe was all he wanted and more
Staring at the flathead, bias plys, and gleaming chrome
He couldnít wait to strike a deal and take this barn find home
The widow haggled and made him earn the sale
And when time came to load it up his winch just had to fail
With all his pals help he got the hot rod loaded
The excitement of this find made his ego quite bloated
As finding this deuce coupe made him feel quite cunning
He hurried home to get his new hot rod running
Working on the car at home, he couldnít wait to make all the other rodders jealous
He got the car going in record time and the first test drive felt quite zealous
The thrilling sounds and smells, rowing through the gears
He then woke up and found his shop filled with only tears

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

All great poems so far. Thank you to all the poets that have contributed. Keep 'em coming guys.

Here's a few more possible prizes. A clock that looks like a speedometer, the Clay Smith Cams Woodpecker on metal by Cornfield Customs and an Eight Ball drilled and tapped for a shift lever.

Dang,--- Snopro, I was rolling right along engulfed in your poem, --- maybe over zealously, and was then brought to my knees in an 'Aaaagh' moment.

That's what I was hoping for, glad I got you! Evoke emotion, then take it all away

Default ode to youth

it wasnt too much long ago
to a house warming i did go
the guy who rented the home
a party making his nieghbors groan
for a quite a bit too much liquor
he made his tyres spin much quicker
in this area lived a local cop
he showed up to put a stop
to the V8's roar, legs 11 on the street
meant the owner had to beat the feet...
needless to say not to long did he stay
least that how i remember it anyway

Crate, well done, I really like a V8's roar, but I guess there's a fussy, slim minority that doesn't.
